Oil and ranching are the driving forces of Andrews, founded in 1910, yet diversification has resulted in new industries locating to the area, including nuclear-related businesses and manufacturing.
Florey Park, north of town, was once the site of an oilfield camp, now hosts the annual Labor Day Weekend Bluegrass Festival. Mature trees and rural setting also make it popular for RVs year round.
The local 18-hole golf course attracts out-of-town guests. And the Andrews County Expo Arena is host to rodeos, calf roping, barrel races, concerts and other activities throughout the year.
Annual events include a Murder Mystery Dinner in February, the "Wild, Wild West Fest" in April, an old-fashioned July Fourth celebration featuring turtle races, the "Ranch and Rig Ride" Bicycle Tour in September and Holly Jolly Weekend in December.
