building now known as Billy Bob’s Texas was built in 1910 and was once
an open-air barn used to house prize cattle for the Fort Worth Stock
Show. In 1936, as a Texas Centennial Project, the building was enclosed
by the City of Fort Worth at a cost of $183,500 and the tower over the
main entrance was added. The “new” structure contained 1,257 animal
stalls, and a 1,200-seat auction ring that is now the Billy Bob’s Bull
Riding arena. Livestock events were held here until the stock show moved
to the Will Rogers Memorial Complex, in 1943. During World War II, the
building was used as an airplane factory for the Globe Aircraft
Corporation. In the 1950′s the building became a department store so
large that the stock boys wore roller skates to make their jobs easier.
100,000 square feet of interior space and 20 acres of parking for
entertainment and events, Billy Bob’s features 30 individual bar
stations, Live Pro-Bull Riding, and a Texas size dance floor.
Bob’s Live Pro-Bull Riding is sanctioned by Championship Bull Riding
(CBR) and contestants compete every Friday and Saturday night. We’re
talking real bulls – not mechanical!
Billy Bob’s Texas is known for bringing in the biggest stars in Country
music, it also has hosted some of the biggest names in Rock and Pop
music, including: Ringo Starr, .38 Special, Men At Work, The Go-Go’s,
Steppenwolf, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Pat Benatar, Heart, and ZZ Top. Even
Ray Charles and Bob Hope graced the historically known stage of the
World’s Largest Honky-Tonk.
