A Guide to Fort Worth During the PBR World Finals
May 10, 2022
Bull riding’s most prestigious event, the PBR World Finals, has finally—and rightfully—made the move to Cowtown. Here’s how to make the most of the show and the host city.
Historically hosted in Las Vegas, the PBR World Finals tried on AT&T Stadium for size in 2020. But after a final round in Vegas in 2021, it has decided that the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth is just the right fit for its new, permanent home. Don’t want to miss a thing? Haul your Airstream to the Ridn Rank RV Park, where you can count on a space with a full hookup, hosted barbecues, meet-and-greet access with the riders, and daily drink tickets. Outside the arena, you’ll find live talk shows, ultimate freestyle bullfighting, and Bulls Gone Wild (think late-night comedy, game show challenges, and bulls).
The Will Rogers Auditorium will host ticketed concerts for Travis Tritt, LeAnn Rimes, Charley Crockett, and Robert Earl Keen. Or make your way to Mule Alley Thursday through Saturday for the nightly street parties. May 13–22.
WHERE TO DRINK
Fans of Truck Yard will love Jason Boso’s newest concept, Second Rodeo Brewing. Stop in for a cold one crafted by brewmaster Dennis Wehrmann of Franconia Brewing fame. You can also grab a bite to eat, then pick a spot on the upper balcony or covered “bar garden” to take in some live music in the “outlaw country” vein. Boso books local talent as well as touring musicians from Austin, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.
