Brilliant night out for all ages. Inexpensive to attend and they make everyone feel welcome. Proffesional rodeo riders and great events for the kids as well

Okay so I'm not judging the Texan culture because I know they've been doing this for a long time but to outsiders it's quite confronting and really does appear like animal cruelty.

Spent the afternoon at the Stockyards watching long horn run (which was a walk really) and waiting for the rodeo. Glad we bought general tickets as 'boxes' were small and no better viewing in my opinion. It was smaller than I anticipated and was indoor - somehow thought it would be outside. Good entertainment for first timers but it did... More

Awesome 2 hr long show. Very interactive with kids and a sight to see. Very professional and not very expensive. They do bronco, and bull riding and calve roping. Also they race on horses. The announcer was a little hard to understand but it wasn't a big deal.

While waiting for the steers to parade down the street, a guy had a steer and said it would cost nothing to sit on the steer. My son got on the steer and I took a picture. He said "it works every time " that will be $5.00. I was in Fort Worth to visit a sick relative and was... More

I went to the Ft Worth Stockyards Rodeo on Friday night with my family and kids. We had previously been to the Mesquite Rodeo in Dallas and I must say Mesquite's Rodeo was far better. I checked the reviews before we went and all of them said Ft Worth's was better. I disagree. First of all the arena looked old... More

I've been to the Rodeo twice now and it's a must if your around or in Fort Worth. They have a lot of cool events and the crowd usually gets into too. It's the real Rodeo feel and heaps of fun

This is an interesting slice of Texas culture, but there's a reason rodeo is a niche sport. If you are rooting for the animals it's great, because they generally win. It's a good way to finish the evening at the Stockyards. Tip - Check out the hall of fame under the stands - there are two fabulous Remington sculptures there.

This is a great introduction for first timer like me. You will get a taste of everything, bull riders, horses with cowboys trying to catch " baby bull". Horse rider doing flip flop, and more. Will go back.

Been to many rodeo's. This was well worth your time and $. Good for families or couples. Great drinks and a lot of action. After there was a band playing out front dancing and a good time. Please put this on your bucket list.
