Labor Day Weekend Celebration


Shiner Labor Day Social Post .png

Summer is sadly coming to a close, but before we say goodbye to our favorite season, we're celebrating workers everywhere with a lawn party and draft beer special this Labor Day weekend! Spend your extended holiday weekend in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards for a Labor Day Weekend Celebration and get $2 Shiner draft all day at our Beer Garden on the lawn off E. Exchange Avenue. Plus, we will have lots of family fun activities including Live Country Music, Longhorn Cattle Drives, Old West Gunfight Shows, Corn Hole, Food Trucks, and more, so grab your boots and mosey on down!

Be sure to make plans to grab a bite at Riscky’ s BBQ or Nestle Toll House Cafe and check out all of the uniquely western shops Stockyards Station has to explore. Plus, hop on a Historical Walking Tour, go horseback riding along the Trinity Trail with Stockyards Stables, get lost in the Cowtown Cattlepen Maze, or take a train ride along the Trinity River on the Grapevine Vintage Railroad to round out your Labor Day holiday!
