Built in 1936, the Will Rogers Memorial Center attracts more than 2 million visitors annually to the Cultural District. The 120-acre facility hosts an extensive variety of cultural, corporate, educational and sporting events, including many equestrian and livestock shows.

Fort Worth’s Will Rogers Memorial Center (WRMC) has been named the League of Agricultural and Equine Centers’ 2018 Facility of the Year.

The award recognizes a league member facility that has demonstrated excellence in the management and operation of an equestrian or agricultural center. Facilities that host equine, agricultural and multi-use events are eligible.

The league takes pride in its member facilities that excel in providing their communities with a safe and enjoyable space for all types of events and educational opportunities. Applicants must demonstrate how their facility excels in four criteria: operational excellence, team building/professional development, safety and security, and service to the equestrian/agricultural community and the community at large.

The League of Agricultural and Equine Centers is a professional organization that supports and promotes management personnel and maintenance procedures at agricultural and equine facilities.

WRMC has been a member of the league since 2012.
