DENVER — The National Western Stock Show is up and running, and on Tuesday, you can check out this uniquely Colorado event for free.
Jan. 14 is Free Grounds Admission Day. That means that walking around the National Western Complex and seeing the events included with grounds admission is free.
Grounds admission costs between $12-$24 for adults and $3-$4 for kids under 12 for the other days of the stock show, which runs until Jan. 26.
Visitors have to buy separate tickets for events like the rodeo.
This year’s edition of the 114-year-old event began on Saturday, when it broke its all-time opening day record with 57,386 guests.
If you haven’t been, the National Western Stock Show is partially a stock show (hence the name), partially a rodeo, partially a fair, and partially a trade show. It also has a petting zoo that, contrary to popular belief, is not just for children.
Free parking is available near the stock show complex as well as at Coors Field, where attendees can catch a shuttle to the actual event.
