Denver, Colo - The 108th National Western Stock Show wrapped up the annual Colorado tradition with a grand total attendance of 640,022. That is an increase of 11,656 guests over last year for the 16 day event. “We saw record numbers this weekend and are thrilled with the great turn out of Stock Show fans these last few weeks” said Paul Andrews, President & CEO of the National Western. “We celebrated another successful year with great weather, exciting pro rodeos, horse shows and record number Jr. Livestock Auction sales” said Andrews.

The National Western Scholarship Trust is funded by three primary sources and each source had a tremendous year. The Junior Livestock Auction had a record year raising $714,900 with a percentage of the total going to fund the Trust. The Citizen of the West dinner, honoring Fredrick Hamilton, sold out the Events Center arena floor. The Coors Western Art exhibit had a great year and a portion of the proceeds fund the Scholarship Trust. All three of these events will produce enough revenue to fund a projected 74 scholarships throughout Colorado and Wyoming for students studying in the fields of agriculture and rural medicine.

“The success of our Show is because of the dedication and hard work of the National Western Volunteers, the support of the City of Denver, our sponsor partners, the livestock and rodeo industry, and the amazing rodeo and stock show fans that come out every year to celebrate the western traditions the National Western Stock Show represents,” states Paul Andrews.
