Long Description:
The very first show was held along Marine Creek, northwest of the current location. By 1908 the event, then called the Southwestern Exposition and Fat Stock Show was held in the area of the present day Fort Worth Stockyards.

In 1944 the show was held at the current location, the Will Rogers Memorial Center. The name of the event was changed again in 1978 to The Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show, though locals still tend to refer to it as the Fat Stock Show.
