Rich in history and tradition, the oldest livestock show in the nation, The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo will celebrate its 116th  anniversary this January 13-February 4, 2012, at the Will Rogers Memorial Center.

fwssrThis Fort Worth legendary annual event started in 1896 with a group of local cattlemen in the Stockyards National Historic District. In 1944, the show moved from the Stockyards to the Cultural District at the Will Rogers Memorial Center, which was the most opulent facility of its time. In 2008, the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame and is now the World’s Largest Indoor Rodeo.
