Come see the world’s only twice-daily cattle drive.
Explore the authentic Wild West history of the Stockyards.
As a drover headed cattle up the Chisholm Trail to the railheads, he had one last stop for rest and supplies: Fort Worth, Texas.
Beyond Fort Worth, he’d be crossing the Red River into Indian Territory.
Between 1866 and 1890, drovers trailed more than four million head of cattle through Fort Worth. The city soon became known as “Cowtown.”
From live music to live rodeo, there’s plenty to entertain your herd.
We’ve got whatever you’ve got a hankering for.
Fort Worth is where the West begins, and nothing embodies Western heritage better than the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the Stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry. Watch a sneak peak >
The Fort Worth Herd is the world’s only twice daily cattle drive, held every day at 11:30 AM & 4:00 PM in the Fort Worth Stockyards. See more…
