It is about to be the most wonderful time of the year – Yep, you guessed it holiday shopping! Taking place during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo this coming December things will be a little different – a new venue, new city, and more holiday shopping than you can wrap you mind around!

As most know, the 2020 Wrangler NFR (Nationals Finals Rodeo) will be held at Globe Life Field, in Arlington, Texas, December 3-12, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a major change from the Thomas and Mack in Las Vegas, but in order for the show to go on temporary decisions had to be made.

Although unprecedented, this venue change is paving the road for cowboys and cowgirls to have a shot at the World Champion titles they have been chasing amidst a year unlike any other. With this drastic change in venues many of you may be wondering, “what about Cowboy Christmas?”

Well, this is where you are in luck!

With the Wrangler NFR moving to Arlington, Tx, Cowboy Christmas will be there in full force but there is a plot twist! You are about to really upgrade your shopping experience because Group W has 3 shopping experiences!

Worth with almost 300 different vendors, ranging from Med Vet Pharmaceuticals to Cowgirl Tuff, Busted K Beadwork, Broncy Donkey Leather Company, Cactus Ranch Designs and SO MUCH MORE!
