The Wrangler® National Finals Rodeo® is here. Keep these things in mind before you head out.
Hospitality Stations + Volunteers
Welcome stations will be setup at the Worthington, Omni, Hilton, and Sheraton hotels in downtown Fort Worth December 2-12. If you’re new in town, and staying at one of these spots, the staffers can help you with recommendations for dining, transportation, and maybe even where to get your boots shined. These friendly folks will be wearing masks, but we can assure they’ll be smiling at you underneath. They will be available from 9 a.m. to noon and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. each day.
Additional hospitality teams will be stationed around downtown Fort Worth (4 p.m. to 8 p.m.) and in the Stockyards (8 a.m. to 8 p.m.) distributing free masks, hand sanitizer and visitor guides. The City of Fort Worth is providing hundreds of thousands of masks and gaiter masks for distribution. The Downtown Ambassador team will be on foot per usual to provide directions, walk you to your car, and generally assist visitors and residents.
Spot volunteers in RED Dickies jacket and black jeans.
Parking + Transportation
There’s no designated transportation to and from Fort Worth to the NFR. The drive from downtown to Globe Life Field is approximately a 20-minute drive, and Arlington has ample parking in the lots normally used for football and baseball. Don’t park in the apartment complexes or businesses near the stadium; towing policies are generally in effect for event days.
Parking in Fort Worth is status quo. You can check fortworthparking.com for information on where to find lots in downtown, the Stockyards and the Cultural District. Parkmobile has a FW PARK app available for download you can use to pay for parking at most meters.
Free public transportation, sponsored by Trinity Metro and Visit Fort Worth, is available for NFR fans connecting these districts.
