Fort Worth Convention Center Introduction

With an indoor arena resembling a flying saucer, the Fort Worth Convention Center has welcomed musical legends including Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones, and has hosted a Davis Cup tennis final. Built in 1968, it replaced what was called Hell’s Half Acre, a 14-block area in Downtown Fort Worth. Since then, it has been expanded on 3 separate occasions. It was originally called the Tarrant County Convention Center and was built to rival the Dallas Convention Center. It's located next to Fort Worth Water Gardens, which has 4.3 acres of waterfalls, pools, and fountains.
