The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is a Texas tradition held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center for 23 days. The event includes the All Western Parade, carnival/midway, live music performances, The Moo-seum Experience, and four acres of local food and retail vendors.
Tickets for the show can be purchased upon arrival. General admission tickets are $10 and grant access to all educational programs, livestock events, commercial exhibits and the carnival/midway. Children, ages 6-16 are only $5 and kids five and under are free.
Rodeo tickets are $28 and include the same events as general admission tickets as well as the rodeo. They can be purchased over the phone with a credit card by calling 817-877-2420 or at ticket office.
TCU fans who want to attend the event for free are in luck. Thursday, Jan. 28 is TCU day. Wearing any type of TCU spirit gear grants free admission to the Stock Show grounds. Rodeo tickets with grounds admission on TCU day are also reduced to $10 for students with a valid school ID.
This year’s stock show will feature a larger budget for the music lineup and the newly renovated Tower Promenade, according to assistant publicity manager Shanna Weaver.
She said that the music lineup will host more performances from local artists such as Jody Nix, Charlie Robinson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Luke Wake and The Damn Quails.
The Tower Promenade is an arched pedestrian thoroughfare that provides stock show goers easy access between the Will Rogers Memorial Center’s parking facilities, to the Coliseum, exhibit halls and livestock facilities.
Fort Worth Mayor Besty Price spoke about the stock show last week.
“Get your boots out, get your jeans out, get your hats out and wear them everywhere.”
