Frontier Forts Muster


Frontier Forts Muster 2017  -7342.jpg

Frontier Forts Muster will return this year on April 5th and 6th. During this free, two-day heritage event, the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District is transformed into an authentic representation of Texas frontier life. The Texas Forts Muster celebration was created in 2001 to celebrate the heritage of Texas’ Frontier fort settlements, like Fort Worth, concentrating on the years from the early Republic in 1836 to the closing of the frontier, and settlement of the 1800’s. Designed to highlight frontier-era life, Frontier Forts Muster brings together authentic wagons, flags, music, colorful uniforms and military gear from Texas landmarks. Infantry, artillery and cavalry demonstrations as well as a military parade will fill the event schedule on Friday and Saturday.
