Just because the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo has passed for 2013 doesn’t mean you can’t catch a great rodeo in April or any other month for that matter. The true spirit of the American cowboy can be seen every Friday and Saturday night at the Stockyards National Historic District at  Stockyards Championship Rodeo. Patrons can look forward to an action packed night of bull riding, barrel racing, calf roping and more. Don’t forget about the calf scramble which is the kids favorite thing to do at the rodeo! The Stockyards Championship Rodeo maintains a strong commitment to visitors looking for an authentic western cowboy experience. The professional staff, enthusiastic contestants and energetic crowd makes Stockyards Championship Rodeo one of the best rodeos in Texas!

Also featured at historic Cowtown Coliseum is Pawnee Bill’s Wild West Show! This show provides a reenactment of the original Wild West show, provides a look at Western history, including trick shooting, roping, riding and cowboy songs. Historical figures such as Pawnee Bill come to life and transport the spectator back in time to the original Wild West Show that was held in the coliseum in 1909. This show is fun for the whole family!
