Guymon sits in the center of the Oklahoma Panhandle which was once No Man’s Land. Guymon serves as a Panhandle visitor oasis of diverse festivals ranging from rich Pioneer traditions to our present multi-cultural diversity.
Guymon hosts the PRCA Pioneer Days Rodeo (Inducted into the Rodeo Hall of Fame in 2015), the Hispanic festival “Guymon Fiesta Day,” “Azuma: An African Celebration,” the “Five State Motorcycle Run and Motorcycle Rodeo,” and The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Blue Def Velocity Tour event.
It is the county seat of Texas County which is known as the “Saddle Bronc Capital of the World” and one of the top agriculture and natural gas producing counties in the nation. Texas County is a northwest Oklahoma leader in renewable energy with recent developments in biodiesel, wind, and solar energy.
Guymon’s pioneer tradition is part of the proud history of the common European descendants and cowboys. Today the citizenship is very diversified, with nearly half of the city’s 16,000 residents being of Hispanic (primarily
Mexican) descent, but also with a large African and Burmese immigrant population.
