Best Bet: National Western Stock Show Starts Saturday

January 9 2009, 11:35 AM
Saturday kicks off Denver's 15 annual days of all things wild and Western (like antique tractor shows, fiddling competitions, and bucking broncos). Wander between the wool judgings and the goat shows, but be sure to save time for this weekend's Mexican rodeo extravaganza--complete with mariachi bands and traditional costumes--and the second week's celebrity chuck-wagon cook-off and stock dog sale. 7 a.m.-9 p.m. National Western Complex, 4655 Humboldt St. 303-295-6124, $7 for grounds admission
