We hope you join us again next year, when we will be celebrating 25 years of the Buffalo Boogie.


Mark your calendars for the 24th annual Buffalo Boogie on Saturday, May 7, 2016, at 8:30 am. We are  adding a 10K race this year on an attractive flat, shade-covered track within the Nature Center grounds. Proceeds from the 10K, 5K, and one-mile fun run, which features live music and family-friendly activities, benefit the Nature Center.

The USATF-certified race courses follow paved city roads within the Nature Center that are closed to traffic for the races. The route is both stroller and dog friendly. The first 750 people to register will receive a commemorative T-shirt.

Registration for Buffalo Boogie also includes entry to the Nature Center, breakfast, arts and crafts, face painting, balloon animals, and eligibility for prize drawings valued at $5,000.

Attendees can visit an event expo featuring a variety of wildlife and conservation entities, preservation organizations, food-and-drink vendors, small businesses, educational exhibits, and a Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge pop-up gift shop.

Registration is $25 (until race day, then it increases to $30). Chip timing is optional for participants registered in the 5K and 10K. Registration for dogs is $5 and includes a bandana. [Only leashed dogs are permitted. No other pets are allowed.]

Parking Information: Watch for parking directions as you arrive at the Nature Center on the day of the event. Nearby parking and shuttle buses will be provided.
