COVID Policy: The 116th National Western Stock Show is back January 8 – 23, 2022 and tickets are on sale now.  Stock Show management understands the questions surrounding public health guidelines and ticketed events.  Our decisions will always be guided on the safety of our guests, exhibitors, vendors, volunteers and staff.  Currently, NWSS does not have restrictions or requirements in regards to COVID-19 protocols.  NWSS management will continue to watch and review safety protocols for both indoor and outdoor events as January approaches.

Current mandates for vaccines and masks in Denver, and across Colorado end prior to the 2022 Show.

CDPHE and CDC strongly recommend that all people wear a mask in public. Vaccination is the best protection against COVID-19 including the delta variant. Colorado has made the vaccine readily available, free and easy. For more information on vaccine locations, please visit
