First time I had been in the auditorium in a long time. Went to see the matinee of the North Central Ballet production of The Nutcracker. The auditorium is still in well maintained shape and the ballet was very enjoyable.

First it's 10.00 to park :( the comedy show was not one of his better shows but we laughed enough to be happy. Drinks were exceptionally expensive. It's a nice place to visit for the circus and rodeo and stock shows I love it there!!!

I come to the Will Rogers Memorial Center every year in July for the NCHA Summer Spectacular and a few more times for different things. The center is really big so a lot of things can go on at once, and you would never know it. There is plenty of parking, but the last few years, we had to pay... More

As a Fort Worth native, I have many fond memories of time spent here. Graduating class walked the stage of the auditorium in 1975. Have attended several Stock Show rodeos and a HECK of a lot of hockey in the coliseum. Did the flea market thing quite a bit in the 80's. Still make as many gun shows as I... More

I've been going to this place for gun shows for a long time now. It used to be free parking. Now it's not free anywhere. So you have to pay to park then pay to get in. So I have to spend damn near twenty dollars before possibly spending hundreds of dollars in the gun show. Screw that I'm done... More

Parking staff was great and plenty of parking. The grounds and all areas were kept very clean and the staff was very friendly and professional.

Went to see Ron White (comedian) at Will Rogers last weekend and while the show was great and the updated interior was very nice, after sitting in the long line of cars waiting to get in to the parking lot we were hit with a $10 charge for parking ($5 would have been more reasonable for a taxpayer owned and...

I've lived on the Dallas side of DFW for almost 20 years & some how managed to miss this place! What a great venue! The auditorium was a great place to see a comedian we love (5th row!) & then crossed the street to the Scott Theatre for a quick concert! Will be looking up more events here soon! Really... More

Went to see Ron White at Will Rogers Auditorium. The show was set to start at 7 p.m. We got there about 5:45 p.m. Staff at the door first said they did not know when the doors were going to open. They then said the doors would not open until VIP ticket holders had entered, all 200 of them. 6... More

Yikes! I felt like I was in Eastern Europe behind the Iron Curtain. If you are looking for a venue, look elsewhere. A refugee from the 1960's when personal health, energy security, and mixing organic waste with recyclables was future smart thinking. OK, so I'm from the enlightened part of America where it is just too expensive to mix organic... More
