PLEASE READ these directions in their entirety -- you'll be glad you did. 


DO NOT use the route suggested by your phone's GPS.  Follow these directions and use the maps instead. Note: you can see your destination by entering the physical address of the Stockyards Center (5004 National Western Drive) which may be helpful. Repeat:do not take the route suggested by GPS.   


Also, DO NOT use the National Western Stock Show main address on Humbolt Street.    


Take I-70 to Washington Street and exit.  Proceed north on Washington for one (1) block to 47th Avenue and turn right (east).  Proceed approximately 1/4 mile to National Western Drive and go left (north).  (This will be the first left you can make after you cross the Platte River). 


Proceed north on National Western Drive approximately 1/3 mile.  You will see Parking Lot C straight ahead (as well as the CSU Spur building).  You can park here -- tell the attendant you are attending the Stockyards Beef Festival. 


There is also parking in Lot D, which you can access by turning left at this point and proceeding to the lot.  Again, tell the attendant you are attending the Stockyards Beef Festival (see map).     


Look for the old Armour water tower, which sits just southwest of the Stockyards Center.  


The event is held in the Stockyards Center Show Arena, which is the north portion of the Stockyards Center.
