Longhorn drive launches another National Western Stock Show

114th go-round for iconic event begins with cattle traversing downtown street

Posted

Thousands of people lined 17th Street in downtown Denver to watch the annual National Western Stock Show Kick-off Parade on Jan. 9. The parade highlighted Colorado’s Western heritage with equestrian organizations, horsemanship performances and the traditional longhorn cattle drive. This year’s grand marshal was Jake Jabs of American Furniture Warehouse fame.

The stock show is a Colorado tradition established in 1906. The Stock Show features Western heritage, education and entertainment throughout the event, including professional rodeos, livestock exhibits and shows, fiddle competitions, artisans and vendors. The Stock Show prides itself on youth involvement, such the Westernaires, 4-H and Future Farmers of America.

In its 114th year, the National Western Stock Show, which started Jan. 11, runs through Jan. 26 at the National Western Complex, 4655 Humboldt St. in Denver. To learn more, visit nationalwestern.com.
