We always have a great time at the Stockyards Rodeo. As a local, it's funny to see people from all over the world come to visit, but I understand the attraction or 'draw' at the same time. There's really nothing like it anywhere else with the history and full cowboy experience from start to finish. I'd like to see a... More

A lot of fun watching the bull riding, barrel racing, and calf roping. Two hours was the perfect length of time for a family experience. I would recommend eating beforehand as the food at the rodeo is limited to burgers, chili dogs, etc. type of food. No fries BTW only chips. General admission tickets are fine to get in terms...

Great Fun and a must to experience! We booked tickets online from NZ and presented receipt to ticket office in FW on rodeo day to get our tickets. Rodeo only on Fri/Sat nights and show looked full. If coming from out of town it would pay to book in advance. All seating types offered a good view. The ones up... More

Really enjoyable evening. The bull riding was great, although no one lasted the required 8 seconds. Lots of fun watching the wrangling & rope skills. Excellent value!

Went to the Stockyards Rodeo and having never been before we weren't sure what to expect. What a great night it turned out to be. The riders are genuinely competitive and the spectators really get behind their favourite. There is some audience involvement as well. As a first timer we were a little uncomfortable initially with the whole idea of... More

Never having been to a rodeo before I didn't know what to expect. What we enjoyed was a 2 hour show with numerous different events. Yes cattle riding but also horse racing around barrels, horse stunts and cow lassoing. What we particularly liked was the way children were involved- not only in a race to capture the tape from a...

Attended the rodeo here whilst staying in Fort Worth. We booked tickets in advance and collecting the tickets was quick and easy. The queue for on the night tickets was huge so I would recommend booking in advance if you can. We just got standard tickets which allowed us to sit anywhere except the box seats. We sat right at...

Just a different culture which of course I accept,but having spent half a lifetime involved with animals and having it instilled in me about cruelty to animals,felt that some of the actions seen there does not see well with me.

Saw my first rodeo here!! Cheap tickets, great thing to do when in texas. Cowboys are good for the eyes. It's a rodeo and all its glory. I had a blast. Sat in bleachers. After the rodeo you can go to the local bars around.

Thank Carrie S
