Fun rodeo

Saw a rodeo here. Very fun place. Not too big so any seat is a good one. Kids loved being over the shoots where the cowboys started from.

The Rodeo is three weeks of buildup to the Grand Finale competitions. Also available, a midway, a variety of eateries, plenty of restrooms and exhibits. There are also adjacent buildings... More

You can even see and visit up close with old cowboy celebrities in the exhibition hall!!! The rodeo is an additional fee, but if you've never been to a "real" rodeo, this is... More

Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is a Texas Tradition. I've been going since my dad took me to see the rodeo and animals. I recently went to see the rodeo and it was fantastic. I also saw some Texas Longhorns.

We saw Nutcracker here last weekend. My first time to this facility and it is not a good one. It's really showing its age. The main problems are: Seating - the floor is literally not angled enough. None of the three of us could see the stage over the people in front of us (and I'm average height, my wife... More

There is a lot of great history to be found here. Make an effort to take in all the Stockyards history while in town.

We attended a conference in their auditorium. Parking was $10 a day even though most of the roads were blocked off. They had no signs to direct guests to the auditorium. This is important since they have several other buildings spread out over a large area - all the buildings looked abandoned so it was hard to find the one... More

The Memorial Center Tower & Auditorium are magnificent examples of Art Deco Architecture enhanced by mosaic murals depicting iconic images of Texas on either side of the building. These buildings go back to the 1930's, & since then at least 10 other buildings serving different functions have been added to the site. All the buildings are aesthetically congruent with each...
