Weather in Calgary

To explore Calgary’s outdoor attractions and nearby national parks, the best time to visit is during July and August, with warm, dry weather and long daylight hours. Calgary Stampede, the city’s famous rodeo competition, runs each July. There’s plenty going on either side of the summer too when the weather is still pleasant. Cold winters can be a shock to visitors, but the city is often blessed with clear blue skies. For many, this is the best time to visit as it provides convenient access to the nearby world-renowned ski resorts at Banff and Lake Louise.
