  • Julia and the staff are amazing! Their passion for people and customer service is truly amazing. They don't just "book" your event, they literally helped us create it. They took care of all the details. The things that we never thought of, they did. They are in communication with you at all times. If you need something they will make sure you get it. You know you are in good hands when you book with the River Ranch.
    Kortney Paul, Senior Vice President of Special Events Syndicate Stock Show and Rodeo

  • River Ranch in the Fort Worth Stockyards was the perfect place for a dinner party and silent auction with over 500 guests! The venue was large, clean, and had a wonderful western aesthetic for a good old fashion western party! Julia and the rest of the staff were friendly, easy to work with, eager to help, and went above and beyond to make our experience and event perfect! The food was delicious, presented nicely, and conveniently served in buffet lines. I would recommend anyone to have a party, large or small, at River Ranch with their three flexible and affordable rooms!

  • It was an absolute pleasure working with River Ranch for our Steak of the Arts fundraiser, the venue was a perfect fit for our Western Chic theme and the team there didn’t miss a beat! The ladies of River Ranch were fantastic all the way through the process, from the initial planning stages to rolling up their sleeves to pitch in with the day-of set up needs! Our guests had a fantastic time, and the entire experience was highly enjoyable. Thanks, River Ranch!

  • River ranch has the best of many worlds when looking for a great venue in the Fort Worth area. As an event producer that travels the country producing high-end events, we always look for a venue that has it all. More importantly the staff is helpful, fair, knowledgeable, and always willing to roll up their sleeves to get dirty.

  • River Ranch may be the most versatile, user-friendly venue in Fort Worth. There is a set-up possibility for any event – large or small. All of the staff members are extremely professional, flexible and accommodating. As long as I’m the one booking the Arlington Heights Homecoming Dance, it’s River Ranch!
    Walli Vick, Arlington Heights High School

  • We love having our parties at River Ranch! The staff treat’s us like we belong there and always think about our needs. We also enjoy the fact that great downtown Ft. Worth is at our fingertips! River Ranch is the first venue I think about when someone mentions Party!
