117th National Western Stock Show Starts Saturday, January 7

{The National Western Stock Show is only one week from the traditional Kick-Off Parade presented by Arrow Electronics which will kick off the 117-year-old Colorado tradition. The historical Stock Show Parade trots through the streets of downtown Denver on Thursday, January 5, at noon. Parade Grand Marshal Dr. Temple Grandin will lead the procession. 
{There’s no place like the Stock Show to celebrate Colorado’s western roots, customs, events, and activities. The 2023 National Western Stock Show, presented by Centura Health, will host more than 30 professional rodeo shows as well as world-class horse shows and will be the “Super Bowl” of livestock shows. More than 15,000 head of horses and livestock will roam the grounds with 25 different breeds of cattle and six other species including miniature cattle, goats, lambs alpacas, llamas and pigs. 
{For 16 days in January the NW Complex grounds turn into a dazzling western landscape. Explore acres of shopping, dining and libations including the legendary Coors Cowboy Bar located in the barns and the Chevy Truck display in the Hall of Ed, and the always-popular petting farm, hosted by King Soopers. With more than 300 activities and events on the schedule there’s something for everyone. (Schedule of Events)
{The Stock Show welcomes attendees from 48 states and 32 countries and will drive around $120 million in economic value for the Denver Metro area in January. As an event that is a non-profit 501(c)(3), this annual event helps raise money to fund the National Western Scholarship Trust, which provides more than 100 scholarships and more than $550,000 to students who study rural medicine, agriculture and vet sciences. 
{The 2023 show will showcase the second year of the prestigious Cille and Ron Williams Yards and the HW Hutchison Family Stockyards Event Center. These two state-of-the-art livestock facilities as well as the historical Hill exhibits continue to set the industry standards for horse and livestock exhibitors, while preserving the rich history and traditions that only happens in Denver.
