Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame
is Making a New Home at Cowtown Coliseum
in the Fort Worth Stockyards
After 35 years in the central Texas town of Belton, the Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame is making a new home in one of the world’s greatest historic rodeo venues, Fort Worth’s own Cowtown Coliseum. The Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame (TRCHF) will pack up and hit the trail north and hang its hat in the corridors of the world’s first indoor rodeo and today’s Stockyards Championship Rodeo. The grand re-opening of the TRCHF will be held July 24 – the National Day of the American Cowboy.
From Ty Murray to Lane Frost, there is not a legend or rising star in rodeo that has not passed through the gates and bucking chutes of the more than 100-year old Cowtown Coliseum in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. The Hall of Fame could not have found a more suitable home!
Every April, TRCHF honors champion cowboys dedicated to the sport of rodeo and represent the unmistakable unique Texas' contribution to the sport! Over 350 cowboys have been honored in its history.
