The National Western Stock Show is back and bigger than ever!
The National Western Stock Show has been a staple in the agricultural community since it made its debut in 1906. This 16-day event is one of Denver's biggest draws for tourists and is considered to be the premier livestock, rodeo, and horse show in the nation!
This year's events will be held from Saturday, January 11, to Sunday, January 26, at the National Western Complex.
Now, there are many reasons to attend the National Western Stock Show, including the action-packed shows as well as the massive trade show. But, my personal favorite has to be the livestock. Not only is the National Western Stock home to one of the world's largest cattle shows, but there's also the opportunity for the younger kiddos to compete and win prize money.
Seriously, the Stock Show is full of incredible events for folks of all ages, but there's a ton of 'em—and ain't nobody got time for that! So, instead of listing every single one, you can simply view the full schedule of events here.
Regular grounds admission, which ranges from $3-$24 per person, will get you access to the stockyards, the trade show, and a bunch of other fun events. However, events like Bull Riding and the Pro Rodeo will cost extra. You can purchase tickets online.
It was also recently announced that Jake Jabs of American Furniture Warehouse will be the 2020 Parade Grand Marshal. The parade will kick off the stock show's festivities on Thursday, January 9, as it makes its way down 15 blocks, from 17th Street to Tremont. (Check out our interview with Jake Jabs here!)
