I’ve been to this place many times. Mostly for dance competitions, but this time for a business seminar. Parking is $10 and there’s a large parking garage behind it. Seats are comfortable and the sound system is great.

Fort Worth has been continuously performing rodeos in this arena since 1944, and they don't disappoint. The grounds are well maintained, the staff friendly. The new multi-event Dickies Stadium will open in Fall 2019, but they are keeping the Memorial Center for other events after...More

We got the watch Texas local Rodeo Stars and out-of-state Rodeo Stars compete for the best ride of the night at Will Rogers. The new Rodeo Center promises to be more spatial and to be more event worthy for the future.

We were so excited to see this show. Assumed it was at Bass Hall. Whoever decided to pass it along to Will Rogers Coliseum, did not choose well. This venue needs completely redone. The Orchestra and movie would be amazing at another venue. Parking was...More

I would Uber in. The handicap parking is limited.

There is lots of parking, but hard to figure out. Some is free, but most costs $12. If you have time, print off the map. Or better yet, Uber in.
