Wonderfull venue not so good food

This is one of the best cattle and horse show venues in the world but as a working cattleman I was disappointed by the food. We need to make more of what we produce.

While a much older arena, it is still quite comfortable, clean and cool. I can't say anything about the conditions of pen or chutes, since we were watching not participating. The old building has a lot of style, and reminds you of what times were like in the good ol' days.

Between the Fat Stock Show, equestrian shows and gun shows, Will Rogers caters to all things western. Fort Worth is where the West begins and Will Rogers leads the charge. The buildings are open all the time so if you have a spare hour and just want to wander a little, this is a good spot. You'll see a newish... More

The Fat Stock Show and Rodeo is the Oldest Indoor Rodeo in the US/World. The history of the place alone is awesome. Then add to that a great "Variety Show" in the World's Original Indoor Rodeo for 2 hours and it's well worth the money. Was here about 9 years ago and the experience is just as great this time....

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
