The 1908 Democratic National Convention was the quadrennial Democratic National Convention, the presidential nominating convention of the Democratic Party. It took place from July 7 to July 10, 1908 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 as the Democratic ticket in the 1908 presidential election. The event is widely considered a significant part of Denver's political and social history.

The 1908 convention was the first convention of a major political party in a Western state. The city would not host another nominating convention until a century later, at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. The convention was also the first Democratic National Convention to include a female delegate.[1]
