Fort Worth Stockyards. 131 East Exchange Avenue. Fort Worth TX 76164
Come join us at the place where the West begins – 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.
Depart the Renaissance Dallas Hotel at 9.30am for the drive to the Stockyard historic district by private coach.
Witness the famous Forth Worth Longhorn cattle drive. Real Texas cowhands drive a herd of Texas longhorns down East Exchange Avenue in the Stockyards National Historic District every day at 11:30 a.m.
The Fort Worth Herd steers can be viewed before and after cattle drives in their pens behind the Livestock Exchange Building or at the Observation Deck just east of the Livestock Exchange Building on East Exchange Avenue.
Drovers are available before each cattle drive for photo opportunities and questions. Be sure and ask for Steer Trading Cards!
Please note no drones are permitted for use in this area. NB: The cattle drive may be cancelled due to inclement weather.
