What’s Happening Here?
As the central shopping and entertainment hub for the 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle, Amarillo is bursting with events, attractions and opportunities.
The Big Ones
Welcome to the Rillo. Thousands of motorists pass through Amarillo every day, and an amazing number of them stop at one of two legendary attractions bracketing the city: The Big Texan Steak Ranch on the east side and Cadillac Ranch to the west. But there’s plenty of Amarillo between these iconic bookends. Get started with this comprehensive list.
Dedicated to highlighting our downtown cultural district, Center City provides multiple free, fantastic events throughout the year! During the summer months, highlights include the Amarillo Community Market and High Noon on the Square. Fall kicks off with Jazztober. And 2019 brought national attention with the city’s first annual Hoodoo Mural Festival.
Exploring The Panhandle
A weekend away doesn’t have to mean a multi-hour drive to the “Big City” thanks to the spectacular events happening right in our own backyard! Explore charming small towns and stay in historic local inns, most of which are less than 90 minutes away.
