Frontier Forts Days at Stockyards Station

12 May

Join us May 13th and 14th for Frontier Forts Days!

About Frontier Forts Days:

During this free, two-day heritage event, the Stockyards National Historic District is transformed into an authentic representation of Texas frontier life.

Exchange Avenue in the Stockyards will be lined with encampments of historic fort sites from the Texas Forts Trail and elsewhere in Texas. Designed to highlight frontier-era life, Frontier Forts Days brings together authentic wagons, flags, music, colorful uniforms and military gear from Texas landmarks. Infantry, artillery and cavalry demonstrations and military parades will fill the event schedule on Friday and Saturday. Re-enactors will also be on hand to discuss frontier life.

The event is free and open to the public.
