Denver, Colo – The National Western Stock Show is back and is seeking 200 volunteers to be a part of the 116th Show, January 8-23, 2022. 

The National Western Stock Show is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to education, agriculture, and tradition while hosting one of Denver’s most significant annual events. The Stock Show was canceled due to the pandemic last January, and after a whole year off, it is calling all Stock Show enthusiasts and fans to join the team and volunteer at the 2022 Show.

“The success and high-quality service provided to Stock Show guests and exhibitors during the 16 days in January depends largely on the passionate and dedicated volunteers of Stock Show,” said Paul Andrews, National Western Stock Show President and CEO. “Without Stock Show in 2021, we now face what many live events face, a shortage of valuable help”.  

This year the National Western Stock Show is looking to recruit 200 volunteers to add to the current 600 volunteer base. Volunteers are needed in guest services, educational activities, the Coors Western Art gallery, livestock and horse show functions.  NWSS volunteers gain experience, new friendships, camaraderie, and an outlet to share their knowledge and skills with Stock Show and rodeo fans worldwide.

Those interested in volunteering should join the NWSS Volunteer Round-Up session featuring Dr. Tony Frank, Chancellor of Colorado State University, this Thursday, October 28th, 7 pm – 8 pm via Zoom. For the Zoom meeting link and to fill out a volunteer application, go to Volunteer applications close December 1, 2021. 

“Approximately 600 volunteers contributed more than 34,000 hours in 2020”, stated Kellie Lombardi, Director of Volunteer Services. “Volunteers share our vision, mission, and support through their countless hours of service. We could not be successful without them.
