COVID Policy: On 12.28.21, the mask mandate for the City of Denver was extended through February 3. This mandate applies to indoor spaces of the NWSS, mainly the rodeo arena and horse show arena. This will not apply to outdoor areas and/or while guests are actively eating and drinking across the grounds. NWSS has applied and received a variance from the Colorado Department of Health for PHO 20-38, regarding proof of vaccinations. As a result proof of vaccinations will not be required for Stock Show.
