South of the river and just west of downtown OKC, Oklahoma’s Western Heritage lives on - virtually untouched since the middle of the 20th century. Located at the crossroads of Agnew and Exchange, Historic Stockyards City serves up a hearty slice of the Old West, so clear a day and shine up your boots, because you’re going to spend some time kicking it in Historic Stockyards City.Learn More

Bring the whole family to Stockyards City in Oklahoma City for the district’s premier Western heritage event, Stockyards Stampede. Partake in a whole day’s worth of cowboy entertainment, from riding demonstrations to a gunfight reenactment. Guests can also wander around the historic Stockyards City, savoring the aroma of range-approved Dutch oven and chuck wagon cuisine while listening to a variety of folk and western musicians perform live.
During the Stockyards Stampede, watch as little cowboys and cowgirls enjoy the kid-friendly zone with a petting zoo, and see them compete in mutton bustin’ and the Little Mr. and Miss Stockyards City pageant. Old West tradesmen will also be on hand demonstrating frontier skills such as blacksmithing, and visitors can take a tour of the Oklahoma National Stockyards facility.
