Stock Show Parade


The sight of over 40 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. On this one afternoon in January, the streets of downtown Denver are lined with boots, chaps and cowboy hats to celebrate Colorado’s western traditions and the iconic National Western Stock Show. Kids, families, business men and women get to step back in time and see a true western cattle drive with horses, cowboys, cowgirls, tractors, marching bands and floats. The parade starts at Union Station and runs down 17th Street on Thursday, January 4, 2018 at noon.
