Arts & Recreation

RodeoIf you think Dumas has Western flavor – you’re right. We are proud of the colorful cowboy heritage that resonates in our warm hospitality, sense of adventure, art and traditions. If it isn’t found in Dumas, than it is probably only a short drive away! From an Art Center to a Zip Line, folks are always finding new events and activities for our community to experience. There never seems to be a weekend that doesn’t have some event occurring, and the kids have more to do than they have time.

ParkOur vacations can take us to beautiful locations in our own community, or to mountains within 3 hours drive. The festivals are great, the people are fun and the only thing preventing folks from finding enough to do is their own refusal to get up! Whether you prefer to be in the stands or on the field, Dumas has numerous opportunities to work up a sweat and get dirty! From mud volleyball to cricket, we are sure to have some activity to get you up and out!


Dumas offers plenty of opportunities to connect with nature through camping, horseback riding, fishing, hunting or bird watching. And, the city’s extensive park system provides attractive, well-maintained areas for tennis, swimming, biking, jogging and even hitting the water slides. Or, drive a short distance in any direction and find yourself facing a zip line, hitting the ski slopes or crashing through waves on a jet ski. We don’t discriminate against your activity of choice; we just want you to enjoy life at your speed. Catch a rodeo or watch a Baja Race, just know that we have more to offer than you could even imagine.
