I have always had a good experience at the Will Rogers Complex. The Stock Show is always fun. The special events and Rodeos are enjoyable as well. The architecture of the auditorium building is really neat. I wish the parking cost was less...but I know that's up to the city.

Not being from anywhere in the Southwest this was our first trip to WRMC to attend a rodeo. Exciting, entertaining, and educational. The Center is a great venue with easy access.

Loved the art deco architecture. This place is huge. We were in one of the theatres, but there are so many different buildings and things going on. The theatre we were in was renovated but maintained the groovy art deco. Loved looking around. Very neat place to visit.

Spent several days here showing cattle. We had one of the newer barns so it was excellent. Even had large fans and the wash area wash great. The arena was wonderful. You could almost feel the history in this place. I loved it.

There's several different parts - the "convention center" area, the "rodeo" area, and the main theater. That latter part is great - decent sound and amazing architecture for the Art Deco buff.

Have been attending the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo at this facility for many years. It is a fun taste of Texas to attend. There are many other functions held here - including the National Cutting Horse Futurity, Texas Trophy Hunters Show in August. It is a great multi-event facility

A classic place and well worth the rejuvenation that it is undergoing to bring everything up to date. It will be magnificent!

When FWSSR comes around, I get excited each year. Then when we go, its somewhat of a disappointment. The venue is not good, very small, traffic flow is bad. Can't wait for the new building. Maybe we could have real entertainment like the Houston and San Antonio rodeos!??!?!?
