1908 Democratic National Convention

1908 Democratic National Convention

The 1908 Democratic National Convention was the quadrennial political convention of the U.S. Democratic Party, which took place from July 7 to July 10, 1908. Held at Denver Auditorium Arena in Denver, Colorado, the delegates to the convention nominated William Jennings Bryan of Nebraska for President and John W. Kern of Indiana for Vice President. The event is widely considered a significant part of Denver's political and social history.

The 1908 convention was the first held by a major political party in a western state. The city would not host another nominating convention until a century later (the 2008 Democratic National Convention). The convention was also the first Democratic National Convention to include a female delegate.
