He'll be followed by three members of his coaching staff - offensive coordinator Dave Dickenson, defensive coordinator Rick Campbell and special-teams coordinator Mark Kilam. After that, University of Calgary Dinos head Blake Nill and Calgary Colts head coach John Stevens will take centre stage.
Fanfest will provide fans with the opportunity to meet members of the Calgary Stampeder Outriders, get their picture taken with Quick Six the Stampeders Touchdown Horse and pose for photos with the Grey Cup.
