Chuckwagon Races

Artist(s): Paul Van Ginkel

Producer: Town of High River


Completed: 1993

Chuckwagon racing is a western tradition that had its beginnings during the days of “open range” ranching when chuckwagons were used as mobile camp kitchens.
At the 1923 Calgary Stampede, Guy Weadick introduced the ‘Cowboy’s Chuckwagon Race’, and it became one of the most popular events. Each year in June, High River hosts the North American Chuckwagon Championships.
The drivers in this mural have won a combined total of 14 Calgary Stampede championships and 11 World Professional Chuckwagon Association Championships.

Artist: Paul Van Ginkel, 1993
