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

The center itself is nice but the price for parking SUCKS!! Depending on which venue you are going for, the gun show gives you a refund on parking. Most others do not!!!

There is no bigger and better steer show in the world than the one in Fort Worth. Excellent time with family. The parking is much improved.

My husband and I have been to rodeos but never been to one together. We live in the area and were both very young last time we were there so decided to stop in. We only went to the rodeo and it was so much fun. Paid for "close" parking and the walk wasn't too bad. We stayed for the... More

What a large facility. Were in town for the stock show and cattle show. Great facility. Could spend several weeks here to see all the exhibits and shows. One of the best stock shows we have ever attended.

Built in the 1930's and is still going strong. The architect was way ahead of his time. Best venue for any event. Longest running event is the Ft Worth PRCA Rodeo in January and all of the horse shows year round.
