Grand Champion Steer Joins Patrons for Afternoon Tea
This is as close as it gets to a bull in a china cabinet. In January, the National Western Stock Show’s Grand Champion Steer is led down a red carpet to be put on display during Afternoon Tea in The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa’s lobby. From 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., catch a close-up of the steer and have complimentary photos taken with him. Open to the public. Reservations are not required.

This November, join us for a one-of-a-kind event. With the stroke of an antique Napoleonic saber, a master swordsman severs the necks of Moet et Chandon champagne bottles.

The Champagne Cascade is open to the public and complements The Brown Palace’s lavish Sunday Brunch (optional). Reservations are not required for the event.
