For 60 years, the Denver Coliseum has provided Colorado with an extraordinary variety of entertainment and special events. Home to the National Western Stock Show, it's the place to bring the entire family to see events as they're meant to be seen - up close! We regularly host a variety of concerts, ice skating events, truck and auto shows, cheerleading competitions, Native American pow-wows and more.
The Denver Coliseum boasts comfortable "people-sized" seating that is close to the action. The furthest seat is only 28 rows from the floor and all seats have unobstructed views. The Coliseum celebrated its 60th Anniversary in 2012 and is proud to continue hosting entertainment and special events for the Denver community. There’s something for everyone at the Denver Coliseum!

How do I get to the Denver Coliseum?
Finding the Coliseum is easy. We are off I-70 just east of its intersection with I-25. Use the Brighton Boulevard exit. The Coliseum is also serviced by RTD bus line 48. Call RTD for schedules and connections information at 303-299-6000.
Where do I park?
There is plenty of parking in our lots, but we encourage you to carpool. Please park as directed by Coliseum staff members. Cars blocking or impeding traffic, or illegally parked, will be relocated. If your vehicle is relocated, contact a staff member for assistance.
Does my child need a ticket?
Although the promoter of some shows may have a different policy, generally children under 2 years of age do not need a ticket. They are required to sit on the lap of the adult and to not interfere with someone else's seat. Please keep in mind that some shows may not be appropriate for young children, and that children must be supervised closely by a responsible adult.
