When the National Western Stock Show first started, Denver, Colo., was the hub of cattle sales and rail shipment of beef to the East. As Denver grew to become the cosmopolitan center of today, the NWSS changed its focus to provide more family fun while still solidly retaining its roots.

The 104th National Western Stock Show is all about family fun. In addition to the business of cattle sales, the 95 acre complex is jam packed with rodeos, horse shows, exhibits, food, Super Dogs and special events just for children.

Interlaced with all this fun is an educational aspect to give kids that have never been up close to a cow, horse, sheep or goat the opportunity to do just that. Pony Trails in the Equestrienne Events Center is an interactive area adjacent to the paddock at the Events Center. There the kids can get a close view of the horses warming up while sitting on saddles and learning what is involved in owning a horse.

One of the most popular areas for children is the Denver Post Petting Zoo in the Hall of Education. The kids really enjoy being able to pet and feed goats, chickens and even a pot-bellied pig. For some, this is the first time that they have been this close to a farm animal. There is some initial reluctance, but it is short lived and soon parents are having trouble getting the children to leave the Petting Zoo.

No family visit to the National Western Stock Show is complete without visiting the children’s Activity Pavilion. It is located just outside of the Expo Hall and is sponsored by Ames Construction and offers a variety of children’s activities. From stick horse rodeos and a stick horse grand prix to pedal tractor races and “Behind the Scenes with a Rodeo Clown,” the programming is fun for everyone.

When it comes to fun, no one has more fun than the Mutton Busters who get to compete during one of the PRCA rodeos. These young cowboys and cowgirls get the thrill of riding a sheep to the thunderous cheers of fans at the PRCA rodeo held at the Coliseum. Many a bull riding career started right here at the NWSS Mutton Busting.

In addition to all of these activities, the Stock Show has dedicated the entire third floor of the Expo Hall to children’s activities. From the chicken show and judging to fun events like winding your own rope. Kids love the animals and the playing and educational exhibits.

So, if you are planning a visit to the National Western Stock Show, don’t leave the children at home. There is plenty for them to see and do and they will have a great time.
