Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District
Saturday, March 18

Have you ever seen an armadillo race? Have you never heard of an armadillo race, but now that you have, you must see one immediately? Well, now’s your chance!

Supported by Public Improvement District 11, the Fort Worth Stockyards is proud to present the city’s largest and most family-friendly St. Patrick’s Day party: the 22nd Annual Cowtown Goes Green Celebration and Parade! Taking place on Saturday, March 18 along historic E. Exchange Ave., this annual event serves as a community-wide festival of Irish culture with a Western twist.

Don yourself in green for a day of fun that goes from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Free family events include live music, two cattle drives and a behind the scenes meet-and-greet with the Fort Worth Herd (1:30-2:30 p.m.), lawn games, Old West Gunfight shows, clogging and dance troops, the big Irish-Western parade at 4 p.m. and, of course, the armadillo races.
