IT’S FORT WORTH’S LEGENDARY EVENT

Roadhouse is the Place to Be For Local Live Music

Giving Back to the Community

The Stock Show partners with groups and organizations to give back to the community. Specific days are designated to provide individuals with free grounds admission or rodeo tickets as well as to raise funds for an important cause, like fighting disease or supporting healthcare. Some of these special days include: 

Dickies Day – Tuesday, January 16: Wear Dickies® apparel on January 16 and get free grounds admission.

Stock Show Goes Pink – Tuesday, January 23: Fifty percent of the day’s rodeo ticket and general admission proceeds are donated to Susan G. Komen of Greater Fort Worth®.

Make Stock Show Parking Easy – Catch the Rodeo Redline!!!

Weekend Stock Show parking can be a breeze by skipping the fuss and catching the Rodeo Redline bus. For $5 – half the cost of regular parking – you can park at Billy Bob’s Texas parking lot and your carload can ride comfortably to the front entrance of the Stock Show grounds. Rodeo Redline runs from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays.

Treat Your Taste Buds to Wine Wednesdays, January 24 and 31

The Show will be introducing Vine 2 Wine, the new and fun wine experience that welcomes your participation. Expand your knowledge at a Wine Camp presented in partnership with the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, Texas Wine & Grape Growers Association and Central Market. Two Wine Camp tasting seminars are available from 3-4:30 p.m. and 5-6:30 p.m. in the Cactus Room of the Amon G. Carter Exhibits Hall. They’re free but seating is limited. You can also scoot over to the Sip & Shop wine tastings in the Texas Room (commercial exhibits) from 4-8:30 p.m. In addition to the awesome rodeo shopping experience, you’ll sample eight wines from four wineries with expert representatives to answer your questions. Sip & Shop requires a paid ticket which can be purchased at the Commercial Exhibits office on the north end of the exhibit hall.

Seeing, Touching, Learning

Of the 6.5 million residents of the Metroplex a very small percentage are ever around horses, cattle, goats or a sheep. The Children’s Barnyard and the Bank of Texas Petting Zoo give the visitor a chance to get up close and personal with these critters. Today, the public wants to be better informed about the food they consume. Planet Agriculture and the Thank a Farmer® Magic Show, both presented by Texas Farm Bureau Insurance, give visitors a true-life picture of what farming is really about and how food gets to the table.
