About the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo
The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is the oldest continuously running livestock show and rodeo. It has been held annually in Fort Worth, Texas since 1896, traditionally in mid-January through early February. In March 1918, the Fort Worth Stock Show first went indoors at Cowtown Coliseum in the Fort Worth Stockyards. A century later, the Stock Show Rodeo is held at the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum and has been there since 1944.
