Dumas: Dumas Noon Lions Dogie Days

This event has already occurred

Dogie Days is an annual town celebration and tradition that includes a carnival, food booths, parade, and town barbecue.

Dogie Days first began in 1946 to help meet commitments made to the Llano Estacado Boy Scout Council to aid the Don Harrington Ranch home for Scouting in Amarillo. It evolved from an event called the Dumas Annual Old Settler's Reunion and Rodeo. Today, the Dumas Noon Lions Club donates the proceeds to local charities and buys eyeglasses for needy people. Proceeds also go to certain Lions causes such as the Leader Dogs for the Blind and the Texas Lions Camp for handicapped kids to name a few. In 2010, the Dumas Noon Lions netted over $70,000 dollars in proceeds for charity. They also fed approximately 6,000 people at the town barbecue,roughly half the population of Dumas.
