Yee Haw!

The National Western Stock Show kicked off on January 9, a century-old reminder of how the West was fun! While most of the action is up at the NWSS complex in north Denver – at the Coliseum, and the Arena, and the Exhibition Hall (with the fabulous Cowboy Bar in the basement, right next to the bull-grooming area), downtown Denver celebrates its cowtown roots today, when the National Western Barbecue starts at 11:30 a.m. in the atrium of the Wells Fargo Building (the Giant Cash Register to you), with a VIP fashion show and Western music open to all, and lunch available for $9 (it benefits the 4-H International youth group). Then at noon, the Stock Show parade – full of marching bands, horseback riders and a stream of Texas Longhorn calendar – kicks off at Union Station, heading up 17th Street to the barbecue. Giddyup and get down in downtown Denver. For a complete list of Stock Show activities, which run through January 24, go to; for info on downtown events, go to
