White Deer, Texas Kickback Day

White Deer, Texas is a thriving community located on US 60 between Amarillo and Pampa. I came here twice to mainly document the UPRA-sanctioned rodeos held each year that drew sellout crowds. 

The rodeos are held during the annual Kickback Days celebration so I returned to document the other activities that go on each year as you can watch below.

The 2021 celebration kicked off with the annual parade.

The afternoon filled the city park with people, music, conversation, reunions, games, food, and wares.

Then there were the rodeo activities with examples below ranking from least to most viewed of all the Kick Back Rodeo events.


I want to return to White Deer in conjunction with cotton and meat production stories in the future. If you have any more leads please Contact Us.

You may see several events on the same day. I can only pick one to go next depending on where I was located during the prior event I attended. Fuel is expensive these days!
