Permian Basin Fair

Spirit of Entertainment

Odessa is as rich in cultural heritage as the lone star state itself. Every first week in January features the Sandhills Stock Show & Rodeo — one of the first on the PRCA circuit. Thousands enjoy the exciting carnival, live entertainment, authentic food, and the traditional Mexican customs of Fiesta West Texas. Beginning the Friday after Labor Day, the Permian Basin Fair and Exposition is the region’s largest annual event. And every even-numbered year, the Permian Basin International Oil Show attracts industry leaders from around the globe, showcasing the latest in petroleum technology and equipment. Whatever you fancy, life in Odessa offers plenty of recreational diversions. Finding a balance is what is important. And in Odessa, we live, work and play hard.
