The HW Hutchison Family Stockyards Event Center is a multipurpose, flexible space that offers two arenas. Ideal for lectures, seminars, small conventions, corporate events, expos, e-sports, live music and other performances, the facility is the newest of its kind in the Denver metro area. With an outdoor plaza, ample parking, and views of the Rocky Mountains and the Denver skyline, the venue is right at home at the National Western Center.
Wagner Equipment Co. Auction Arena:
Fixed theater-seating in an arena bowl style, with balconies that step down to the plaza and flexible conference rooms.
Stow L. Witwer Memorial Show Arena:
A multi-use black box theater space with capacity for additional floor seating. Opens onto the north plaza for indoor/outdoor events.
During the National Western Stock Show each January, both arenas will be active with livestock auctions and livestock shows, bringing a new level of modernity and functionality to these events for exhibitors and visitors.

CILLE AND RON WILLIAMS YARDS
The exterior of the building includes an outdoor plaza that connects to the expansive, 20-acre Cille and Ron Williams Yards. Near the location of the historic stockyards that stood on this site for more than a century, the new, flexible, hardscaped Yards allow for events all year round, including concerts and festivals, large equipment trade shows, sporting events and drive-in movies. They feature removable pens for livestock shows, as well access to power and water throughout. They can also be used as ample parking for other events at the site.

Most of the year, the Yards will be a 20-acre, open outdoor space for a variety of events. Mobile pens are added for the National Western Stock Show in January (depicted here) and other livestock shows.
A plaza at the edge of the Yards can host outdoor concerts and other events.
Reclaimed wood from the site’s old “Haybarn #5” (also known as the Brands Building), will create a wood screen at the Stockyards Event Center’s front entrance. This design feature is one example of the city of Denver’s commitment to preserving and re-integrating historic and cultural resources from the site.
The Stockyards Event Center and Yards are the northernmost event spaces at the expansive National Western Center (top of image).
