National Western Stock Show leaders, joined by Mayor Michael Hancock and other city officials, announced Nov. 13, 2012, they are committed to keeping the show in Denver.
"Denver has been the Stock Show's beloved home for 106 years, and our complex is a time-honored destination for visitors worldwide," said Paul Andrews, the National Western's president and CEO. "We want to enrich and educate the lives of millions for another century, and we believe our future exists right here where we began. By working with our dedicated city partners, we will find the best option to create a sustainable future for the world's greatest stock show."
The National Western's intention is to remain at its current location in Denver's Elyria-Swansea neighborhood and explore forging stronger partnerships and greater coordination with Art and Venues Denver and Visit Denver.
"We are not moving out of Denver at any time, period," Andrews said. "We are going to work to try to expand on the site."
