NWSSParadeLonghornsLogo The sight of over a hundred Texas Longhorn cattle walking through the streets of downtown Denver can only mean one thing…it’s Stock Show time.

The National Western Stock Show Kick-Off Parade is a sight to see with marching bands, floats, horseback riders, cowboys, cowgirls and yes…Longhorn cattle. The parade starts at Union Station and runs down 17th Street on Thursday January 4, 2018 at noon.

In conjunction with the parade is the annual National Western BBQ Lunch beginning at 11:30am in the atrium at the Wells Fargo Building. Visitors can listen to Western music and catch up on the latest trends at a Western Fashion Show. The BBQ is open to the public and benefits the 4-H International Youth Group. Meal Tickets are $10.

There is so much to see and do with your Grounds Admission ticket. From Mutton Bustin’ to shopping to meandering through the “Historic Yards” to see the different cattle breeds, there is lots to see and do at Stock Show!
