About us

The first CARC/Washington Ranch Oil & Gas Festival is a fundraising event for CARC, INC. whose mission is to provide services for people with Special Needs which enables them to be active citizens, feel accepted and find meaning in life.

We at CARC and Washington Ranch would like to honor the Men and Women working the “The Patch”. We believe they should be recognized for their hard work in making this part of the country the leader in the world for oil and gas production.

We aim to celebrate, promote and educate the public on this important and valuable industry in this region. Many people have different paradigms about the “Patch” and the workers. We believe this is an opportunity to have the oil and gas companies and the service contractors come show off and have some fun! Entry to the event is only $10/vehicle which will be collected at the entrance gate. Access to the evening concert requires the purchase of separate tickets.

We are blessed to have a facility like Washington Ranch, expansive enough to handle large industry equipment and displays. This will allow people the opportunity to get up close and personal with the equipment and the personnel of the “Patch” and how it all works together.

We want you to enjoy the scenic views and wildlife at Washington Ranch and have a great day celebrating this wonderful industry and supporting the amazing activities and programs at CARC.

We’re excited to give you the opportunity to experience Washington Ranch and help us raise funds to continue to serve individuals with special needs. Come early and enjoy games for young and adult, food, music, and lively X-Patch game competition. Stay all day and end it with a wonderful concert by our headliner Clay Walker!
