Trail Drive Management Corp. (TDMC), the not-for-profit operators of Dickies Arena, will host a ribbon cutting ceremony and community open house on Saturday, Oct. 26 to formally welcome the community into the world-class arena.
The ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on the east side of the arena, on Simmons Bank Plaza. Immediately following the ceremony, the arena will be open for self-guided tours that guests can register for in advance by visiting Ticketmaster.com. Tickets to tour the arena are free, and there will be a limited number of tickets available throughout the day, between 10:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Guests are invited to experience the beautiful architecture and state-of-the-art spaces while trying a variety of food and beverage options that will be available for purchase at a discounted rate.
Throughout the day, guests will be encouraged to enjoy activities on the Simmons Bank Plaza. Performers from popular family shows – including Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live’s BIGFOOT, WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley, a Harlem Globetrotter, and a special presence from Cirque du Soleil – will be on site to celebrate with the citizens of Fort Worth. Local acts will perform on the Simmons Bank Plaza stage, and Dickies Arena founding partners, including Dickies, Chevrolet, Texas Health Resources, Reliant and Simmons Bank, will also be on site to engage with the community.
Guests are welcome to visit the activities on the Simmons Bank Plaza throughout the day but must have a free ticket to take a self-guided tour, which can be acquired online at Ticketmaster.com.
Parking for the event is complimentary. Guests are asked to use the Yellow Lots across from the arena on Trail Drive.
