Stock Show Complex To Get State Tourism Money

November 12, 2015

The remake of the National Western Stock Show complex will get state tourism dollars, the Colorado Economic Development Commission decided Thursday. The amount of funding hasn't been decided -- that will be determined by the end of the year. 

This month, voters in Denver County approved a key piece of financing for the stock show plan. And the Legislature approved $250 million in funding earlier this year.

“Denver is grateful to the State for its thoughtful consideration and critical commitment of funding to National Western Center,” Mayor Hancock said in a statement.
