Arizona National Livestock Show
The Arizona National Livestock Show is the largest livestock show in the Southwest, and has been an annual Phoenix tradition since 1948. Exhibitors travel from more than 25 states for the annual affair, bringing nearly 1,700 head of the nation’s best cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and swine for competition. Competition in the show ring will be fierce across the species, as only the Grand Champions and Reserve Grand Champions in the respective breed divisions will sell in the Sale of Champions.
The Arizona National Livestock Show is proud to serve the agricultural producers by growing the future through the promotion of agriculture, community partnerships, western heritage, youth development and education.
