Texas law allows a person licensed to carry their handgun onto the City of Fort Worth -owned Stock Show grounds except for the following areas where handguns are prohibited: Will Rogers Coliseum when professional rodeo events are taking place (Jan. 19-Feb. 6).
The Stock Show offers multiple garages on the grounds at the Will Rogers Memorial Center. They generally charge $15 a day. Dickies Arena, the site of this year’s rodeo , is located adjacent to the Will Rogers Memorial Complex at 1911 Montgomery St. in Fort Worth .
General admission also includes access to three museums on the Stock Show grounds–the Cattle Raisers Museum , the National Cowgirl Museum , and the Science and History Museum . All the actual rodeo shows–bull riding and FWSSR PRORODEO tournaments–require a $30 ticket and take place in Dickies Arena.
Other animal welfare groups, including the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), also object to rodeos . The ASPCA calls them “a cruel form of entertainment that involves the painful, stressful and potentially harmful treatment of livestock”.
According to JobMonkey.com, the pay for rodeo clowns ranges from $100 to $500 per event; full-time clowns can make as much as $50,000 per year, based on working 60 to 100 events a year.
