Congratulations to all of you who survived your Dry January challenge, to those who turned over a new leaf and hit the gym hard for a couple of weeks, and to those who took all those warnings of “snowmageddon 2024” seriously. At least your pantry is well-stocked until early summer. Now, as the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo gets ready to gallop into the sunset until next year, we look ahead to what February has in store for us. There is no shortage of magical, musical, artistic, and athletic events to enjoy.

These are the best things to do in Fort Worth this February.
