The best 16 days in January are right around the corner as the National Western Stock Show happens Jan. 6th through the 21st this year. As always, you’ll need a ticket to one of the events at the Stock Show or you’ll have to pay an admission fee to come check things out… Unless you plan to go on their annual free admission day.

Free Admission Day for 2024 is on Tuesday Jan. 9th. 

The free admission applies to everything that’s not a separately ticketed event, like a rodeo, at the National Western Complex. The event’s hours for the day are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

If you’re unable to go on Jan. 9th, you can purchase tickets here. The cost of the tickets depends on the day of the week:

  • $17 – $25 for adults 12+
  • $4 – 5 for children 3-11
  • Free for children 2 and under

Parking near the Stock Show grounds is available on a first-come first-serve basis and fills early. The Stock Show is encouraging visitors to park at Coors Field. Free shuttles run every 10 minutes and drop off in front of the Denver Coliseum.
