There are officially two inevitable and delicious food groups every good Calgarian must indulge in during the Calgary Stampede: Beef and Pancakes!

And for the last 6 years, the businesses of Calgary’s Fourth Street BRZ have been serving up the latter in a multitude of Gourmet ways during their annual 4th Street Pancake Showdown!

This completely free event will take place this year on July 6th between 9:00-11:00am where well over a dozen competitive flippers will be grillside.
During the showdown, hungry attendees will indulge in some of the most unique pancakes the city has ever seen…And the creators will all be vying for your vote!

Last year’s popular vote saw winner, Mission Dental, who offered up a Chocolate Cherry Pancake take home the title of Best Pancake of 4th Street during the annual event.

This year, a whole new batch of pancakes will debut and I’ve got the scoop (or flip) on a few of this year’s contenders as well as some ‘smart tips’ on how to make most of this exciting event!
Here’s a peek at what to look forward to:

The Mission Public House:

Rosé Pancakes
Pink cakes with wine & strawberry compote, chantilly cream and PINK SPRINKLES!!

Smart Tip:

Mission Public House is also the HQ during the Pancake Showdown. They always impress with live music, face painting and other Yahoo-able offerings for kids and families.


Churro Pancake
Cinnamon sugar infused batter, topped with almendrado whipped cream & Nutella sauce

Smart Tip:
Original Joes located right next to Anjeo will also be plating up a specialty pancake again this year, so split the lines with a friend and double up!


Triple Fruit Pancakes
Spicy Apple Pear Pancakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream & Wild Berry Coulis

Smart Tip:
Wurst is typically the most popular during the end of the Showdown, so start here first at 9am and head North!

Those are just 3 of the many tasty pancakes you’ll be scarfing back on July 6th.

This year’s Fourth Street Pancake showdown will prove to be yet another epic battle royal of culinary creations.

So start your 10 days of Stampede off right and hit up the most unique pancake breakfast in Calgary!
