August 1-3, 2019
83rd Annual XIT Rodeo & Reunion - Dalhart, Texas
Since 1936, cowboys and their families who worked on the XIT Ranch have been gathering at annual reunions to reminisce about life on the ranch. Since 1937, these reunions have been held in Dalhart, where the addition of a rodeo and a free barbeque have been opened to the public. Today, the event, which triples the size of the town, is one of the most exciting western celebrations in the world.  In the 1880s the XIT Ranch was the largest ranch in the world under fence, and it sprawled across the Texas Panhandle up from the old Yellow House headquarters near what is now Lubbock, northward to the Oklahoma Panhandle in a crazy strip that was roughly thirty miles wide. At one time, the ranch ran over 150,000 cattle.
