Whiskey Ranch, home of F&R Distillery Co., is one of our favorite out-of-the-box places to visit in Fort Worth. Whiskey Ranch is located on a historic golf course, formerly Glen Garden Country Club, with stunning views of Downtown Fort Worth. It is the largest whiskey distillery west of the Mississippi. With the Holidays upon us, we wanted to let you in on a little secret. Did you know Whiskey Ranch is now offering public tours? Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 12:30PM and 2:00PM, you can experience the immersive tour on the art and science of whiskey distilling and see the beautiful Whiskey Ranch firsthand. It truly is an awesome experience for men, women, young, old, whiskey-drinkers, or not. It would be the perfect place to take your out-of-town family and friends to over the Holidays.
A Wish with Wings™ began in 1982 as Texas’ first wish-granting agency. For more than 30 years, they have granted over 1,800 wishes to Texas children fighting life-threatening medical conditions. Health issues make life difficult, especially for young patients. AWWW donors and volunteers help bring happy moments to families in need of good news. They think of it as giving wishes wings.
A Wish with Wings is back for its 7th Annual Kitchens Tour on Saturday, November 17th 2018, from 10AM to 2PM, in the Ryan Place neighborhood of Fort Worth.
This year, our very own agent Karly Johnston, will be one of the kitchens featured on the tour! You can check out her blog here to find out more about her and why she is so passionate about the homes of Ryan Place.
We are so excited to announce the Cowtown Ball will be back for its 25th year on Friday, September 28, 2018. The "Life is our Legacy" themed 25th Anniversary celebration will be held at Whiskey Ranch, the new home of the Firestone & Distilling Co., with live entertainment from Diamond Rio, dinner by Reata, Open Bar, Silent & Live Auction, Pig Races, and much more!
The best part is that all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society, an organization that is very near and dear to our hearts. They are on a mission to celebrate more birthdays and free the world from cancer, something almost all of us have been touched by in some way.
It’s my favorite time of year, with my favorite people (all RP peeps), in my favorite neighborhood! The Candlelight Christmas tour has been a Ryan Place tradition since 1984. This event is one of the many reasons that Ryan Place has maintained its reputation for beautiful landscaping, street lanterns, restored entry gates and more. Every year, Ryan Place residents and people traveling from miles around come together to volunteer their time and home to share and experience this historic neighborhood!
Fort Worth Junior League is at it again... the holiday Gift market's 9th annual shopping extravanganza. This is a must attend event! You can find something for everyone on your naughty or nice list. Take the stress out of holiday shopping and start early with hundreds of vendors to choose from. This is a great way to spend the day with friends/family and give back to your community.
Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is not just something tourist and vendors participate in. This event is a local love that us 817’ers have been enjoying for years. I can speak for most of us when I say, we are proud that it’s a part of our culture. You will notice our town’s wardrobe changes a little this time of year, to boots and jeans.
