Only one day a year do you see a bunch of longhorn cows walking through Downtown Denver, and that day of course is the National Western Stock Show Parade. This year’s parade is tomorrow (January 5th, 2023).

The Parade, presented by Arrow Electronics, lines the streets of downtown Denver with boots, chaps, and cowboy hats to celebrate Colorado’s western traditions and the iconic National Western Stock Show. Kids, families, businessmen, and women get to step back in time and see a true western cattle drive with horses, cowboys, cowgirls, tractors, marching bands, and floats.

The parade starts at Noon at Union Station at 17th Street and ends at 17th & Glenarm Pl.

Everyone is also invited to the first-ever Stock Show Fair at McGregor Square! See McNicholas Miniatures therapy horses, music, western royalty, a food market, and more. This event goes from noon through 2 p.m.
