Program Description:


4-H on Parade is the largest youth show in Canada and the 3rd largest in all of North America, so don’t worry if you don’t “get it” right away. There is a lot to know and we hope that this information package will provide at least enough information to get you started and feeling comfortable with the event and what is expected of your club.

Committee Structure

  • 4-H on Parade Planning Committee - the overall planning of 4-H on Parade is done by the 4-H on Parade Planning Committee, which is a sub-committee of the Calgary Stampede/4-H Committee. Volunteers on this committee provide support to the sub-committees (liaisons) and are responsible for the areas of the show that affect all participants (i.e. stall judging, awards, etc.).
  • 4-H on Parade sub-committees - each sub-committee consists of representatives from clubs who are planning to participate in that specific show at 4-H on Parade. If your club has more than one project being represented at 4-H on Parade, you need to send a rep for each project.
    • Please note that some committees have meetings in addition to the 4-H on Parade Leader’s meetings. Each sub-committee has its own requirements regarding required meeting attendance in order for clubs to be able to participate in 4-H on Parade. Please check with your sub-committee to confirm meeting dates and attendance requirements.
  • Calgary Stampede - the 4-H on Parade has a designated Calgary Stampede Agriculture Event Coordinator, who works with us.
