Cowtown Coliseum and the Fort Worth Stockyards have solidified their position as DFW’s premier destination! Whether you’re in search of a delightful family outing, a memorable date night, or an authentic Texan experience, Cowtown Coliseum is the place to be. Renowned as the venue that hosted the inaugural indoor rodeo in 1918, the Coliseum now hosts four year-round Western shows a week.

The PBR Stockyards Showcase has become a favorite for Fort Worth locals to watch year-round on Thursday nights. Guests will witness some of the toughest athletes take on the rankest bulls every week as they compete to earn points for a chance to qualify for the Ride for Redemption rounds, potentially leading to a shot to compete in the PBR World Finals.

Don’t wait to grab your tickets for the Friday and Saturday night Stockyards Championship Rodeo—this event sells out fast! Whether it’s your first rodeo or not, the Stockyards Championship Rodeo caters to all age groups and features bull riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing, bareback riding, team roping, saddle bronc riding, and breakaway roping. The Rodeo offers the chance for kids to be a part of the show when they sign up for the mutton and calf scramble. Be sure to arrive early to watch Fort Worth Herd’s historic cattle drive along E. Exchange Avenue at 4 p.m. and enjoy live music on the front lawn where guests are welcome to enjoy a fresh beverage and snack from the outdoor kiosk.

The weekend wraps up on Sunday with the Ultimate Bullfighters matinee, an adrenaline-fueled, high-intensity rodeo sport that showcases the agility and daring of skilled athletes. Freestyle bullfighting emphasizes close quarters maneuvering and choreographed evasions. Competitors showcase their athleticism by performing acrobatic leaps, spins, and rapid changes while trying to outwit the bull in the arena.
