The Kids Just Love It Here!!
There's always something fun for the kids at the Historic Cowtown Coliseum
Planning out what you are going to do with the family this weekend just got easier. If you have kids and want them to experience something they won't forget, look no further.
The Stockyards Championship Rodeo is every Friday and Saturday night at 8pm and it is full of fun family friendly entertainment the whole time. They have Calf and mutton scrambles for the Kiddos at every rodeo. Kids ages 7 and under can go out into the arena and chase a sheep around and whoever gets the ribbon of the sheeps back wins a prize. The same is done for kids ages 7 to 12 but the chase a calf around the arena. It is a hoot to watch and your kids will remember that moment forever. (Hint) Friday Nights offer a Family 4 pack for $40 so the price is very family friendly.
Every Saturday and Sunday afternoon at 2:30 and 4:30 the Coliseum hosts The Pawnee Bill's wild West Show. It is a step back into yesteryear with a tribute to the old Wild West Shows of the early 20th century. There is Trick Roping, Trick Riding, Trick Shooting, a bullwhip act, and so much more. The kids love watching all of the cool tricks and stunts. After the show everyone is invited down onto the arena floor to meet the cast and take pictures. Its a great way to spend an hour out of the heat on the hot TEXAs afternoon.
From weekly rodeo action to wild west shows the Cowtown Coliseum isn't just an iconic historic building in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards. It's a Coliseum filled with awesome events that are family friendly and the kids just love it! When weekly rodeos and wild west shows aren't going on, the coliseum is open to tour, and this is absolutely free. The Coliseum is home to the Bull Riding Hall of Fame and the Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame, as well as home to a Bill Pickett exhibit. You can spend time learning about the history of the sport of rodeo and its contributors, or look over the picture on the history wall in the front lobby of the coliseum.
