Amarillo Tri-State Fair Grounds and Rodeo
The Tri-State Fair & Rodeo Gala happens every year on the Saturday prior to the fair, and this year is no different. The gala not only serves as a kickoff to the annual fair and rodeo but is a fundraiser for the scholarship endowment. All money raised through the auction benefit the Amarillo Tri-State Exposition Scholarship Endowment. It was an evening of food, drinks and entertainment.
Our park has everything from thrilling high speed slides to a giant wave pool. All rides with pools are monitored closely by skilled and certified lifeguards. Splash Amarillo also has areas that include basketball and sand volleyball courts. While you’re at the park, you can relax in several shaded areas or if you prefer more privacy, rent one of our Tiki Huts, to take a break from the sun.
The Amarillo Tri-State Exposition will provide a wholesome, educational, cultural and recreational experience for area citizens by hosting the Tri-State Fair and Rodeo and other events to strengthen the Amarillo economy.
