Join NBC 5 in celebrating 120 years at the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo January 15 through February 6. Twenty-three days of fun-filled entertainment awaits you at Will Rogers Memorial Center. Get your tickets today and enjoy a tradition-filled western heritage experience.
The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo is an action-packed, full-filled experience for the whole family. The Show features 36 rodeo performances, livestock exhibits, a carnival midway and lots more.
Rodeo and the beat of live music go hand and hand. Bring your friends and see why the Coors Light Roadhouse has “gone platinum.” They’ve got some exciting acts in this year’s lineup including Derryl Perry, Charlie Robinson, Mike and the Moonpies, Jody Nix, The Damn Quails, Cody Canada and the Departed, Kelly Wills and Bruce Robinson, Midnight River Choir, and Prophets and Outlaws.
The Stock Show partners with groups and organizations to give back to the community. Specific days are set aside 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:
Dickies Day – Tuesday, January 19: Wear Dickies® apparel on January 19 get on the grounds for free.
Stock Show Goes Pink – Tuesday, January 26: Fifty percent of the day’s rodeo ticket and general admission proceeds are donated to Susan G. Komen of Greater Fort Worth®. Breast cancer survivors are treated to free grounds admission and a ticket to the evening rodeo performance.
TCU Day – Thursday, January 28: Purple garb is popular in Fort Worth and especially on TCU Day. Anyone wearing TCU gear receives free general admission (does not include rodeo performance). Making the day more special is $10 rodeo tickets (a $20 value) with a valid TCU student ID.
Military Appreciation Day – Monday, February 1: Active and retired military members and their immediate families receive free grounds admission and tickets to both rodeo performances.
Cook Children’s Day – Wednesday, February 3: Support Cook Children’s Neonatal ICU by purchasing tickets to either the 2 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. rodeo performance. Half of the proceeds benefit this worthy cause.
From a mobile app that places important Stock Show information in your hand to a dynamic website that allows you to purchase tickets, merchandise and see current updates on show results, the Stock Show embraces the digital age. So you won’t miss a minute of rodeo action during your run to the concession stand, new video screens are conveniently located throughout the concourse of the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum. The Justin Arena also boasts a large HD-capable video screen where videos and information will enhance the visitor experience.
Keep your smartphone handy while at the Stock Show. Those selfies and fun pictures of you and friends can find their way all over the grounds. Simply post them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the Show’s hashtag – #FWSSR – and the magic of technology will display them on the Stock Show screens. It’s a fun way to engage with the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.
Of the 6.5 million residents of the Metroplex, a very small percentage are ever around a horse, cow, goat or a sheep. The Children’s FFA Barnyard and the Bank of Texas Petting Zoo give visitors the chance to get up close and personal with these critters. Today, more and more people want to be informed about the food they consume. Planet Agriculture and the Thank a Farmer® Magic Show, both presented by Texas Farm Bureau Insurance, are awesome at giving the visitor a picture of what farming is really about and how food gets to the table.
