One of the largest attractions in the Texas Panhandle, the Tri-State Fair and Rodeo spans a week and a half with everything from a parade to a sea lion show to all the classic rodeo events you could ask for. The activity-packed and family-friendly fair includes a petting zoo and puppet show, a full carnival with tons of rides and games, and cooking contests for pancakes, barbecue, salsa, and more. There’s also live music and dancing, magician and hypnotist shows, and exhibits with opportunities to learn about the importance of agriculture in the Texas Panhandle. Come out to enjoy a full fair and rodeo experience.
