Rodeo fans and thousands of 4-H and FFA youth are eagerly awaiting the 125th Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo as it rides out of the chute for its 23-day run on Friday, Jan. 14. Keeping show exhibitors, visitors and workers safe and healthy is a top priority.

“We are already experiencing the excitement our fans have for the Stock Show,” said FWSSR President and General Manager Brad Barnes. “Clearly, getting back to the Stock Show is on the calendar for thousands of folks across the state and across the country.”

This year, the City of Fort Worth is offering no-charge COVID-19 tests at two locations during the entire run of the show, and Tarrant County Public Health is administering vaccinations onsite.

Testing

Testing operated by the City of Fort Worth will be available at two sites:

  • North end of the Moncrief Building, 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. seven days a week.
  • Dickie’s Arena, 1911 Montgomery St. 6-8:30 p.m. Jan. 14-16. Additional pop-up testing events will be scheduled based on events scheduled in the arena.

Vaccines

Offered by Tarrant County Public Health, COVID-19 vaccinations will be administered without charge and without appointments at the Richardson Bass Building, Meeting Room E, 1501 Rip Johnson Drive. First, second and booster shots will be available 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Saturday. The clinic will not operate on Sundays or on the MLK Day holiday, Monday, Jan. 17.

A few reminders:

  • Don’t attend the stock show or rodeo performances if you’re feeling sick. Otherwise, y’all come!
  • Get vaccinated.
  • Wear a mask.
  • Follow social distancing guidelines as much as possible.
