Wednesday, May 26, marks the birth of an American icon — John Wayne, the actor who one biographer wrote “personified for millions the nation’s frontier heritage.” And the John Wayne: An American Experience museum is doing it up BIG in the Fort Worth Stockyards to celebrate with the Wayne family in attendance.
Wednesday will be a full day of old western fun in The Stockyards, with the festivities kicking off at high noon. Enjoy live music, food, western games, and more in front of John Wayne: An American Experience on Rodeo Plaza, next to the Cowtown Coliseum. Special events are free and open to the public! The museum will also be open to guests from noon to 6:00PM.
