You can enjoy foods such as cotton candy mini doughnuts, deep fried ice pops and a cotton candy taco served in a waffle cone taco shell.
The second one we tried was the Flamin' Frog Legs. Now I did try this as well just off camera. I thought it was exactly like a spicy chicken wing. #CalgaryStampede #Tasteslikechicken #yyc pic.twitter.com/461D5YJuO0

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Stampede Midway without unusual food to sample and this year there’s a new tentacle in town.
That’s right, two octopus dishes are on the list this year including the Octo-leg: a deep-fried octopus tentacle and the Octo Lolly, a tiny octopus on a stick.
The 2019 Calgary Stampede runs from July 5 to 14.
