Sure, you might not be an actual cowboy, but at the National Western Stock Show, you can wear a bolo tie without judgement or having to step foot in a hipster bar.

And, if you find yourself house poor due to Denver’s housing market, pay attention: Tuesday is free grounds admission day at the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo!

What exactly does grounds admission entail? Well, in addition to recouping the cost of a ticket by buying a lot of western wear you didn’t know you needed, there’s also a petting zoo, the chance to see a wide variety of livestock firsthand and people watching galore.

We spoke to a wide variety of people from the stock show on 9NEWS Mornings. Hear more about the legendary Denver event in the video below!
