The growth of Fort Worth's downtown, 35-block Sundance Square shopping and entertainment development (featured on ESPN College GameDay) has helped boost the demand for meetings and conventions. Downtown Fort Worth is adding more than 1,000 hotel rooms.
Dickies Arena, located in Fort Worth's Cultural District, is an exceptional facility located on the Will Rogers Memorial Center campus. The arena attracts a wide variety of high-quality entertainment options to the Fort Worth area including concerts, sporting events and family shows, as well as hosts the month-long Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. In addition to exciting entertainment and sporting events, Dickies Arena has the capacity to accommodate conventions, exhibit events, business meetings and private receptions with flexible meeting and event spaces ranging in size from 685 square feet to 91,315 square feet.
Stockyards National Historic District is one of the most popular spots in Texas and home to The Fort Worth Herd, the world's only twice-daily cattle drive. Fort Worth's Hickman family, who led the preservation of the district 30 years ago, is nearing completion of a $175 million development plan to enhance the area with Majestic Realty.
Mule Alley is a carefully curated collection of restaurants, eateries, entertainment venues, shops, heritage brands, and creative workplaces located in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. As part of one of the most iconic travel destinations in the world, the new Mule Alley project transcends typical development and brings an area in the district that was once vibrant back to life. After six years of planning, Stockyards Heritage Development Co. set out to revive the 108-year-old original horse and mule barns into one of the most iconic redevelopment stories found in US history.
Mule Alley features iconic stores and restaurants including Shake Shack, Lucchese Bootmaker, Provender Hall, and MB Mercantile, and is set to welcome additional tenants in the upcoming months, including Cowtown Winery, Biscuit Bar, Wrangler, Second Rodeo Brewing, and many more.
