Join Visit Fort Worth in Celebrating Black History Month

Fort Worth is home to a rich tapestry of cultures. Discover the Black heritage that shaped Fort Worth and contributed to the city’s economic accomplishments and cultural diversity. 

Many of Fort Worth’s most popular attractions are a continuation of traditions born out of Black community and culture. 

  • Visit the Bill Pickett Rodeo, the longest-running Black Rodeo in the US. Founded in 1984, it was created to give Black cowboys a platform, develop the next generation of rodeo stars and bring the sport of rodeo to a new generation of fans. Learn more here.
