Go, Go, EXPO!
In November 2018, Lubbock County voters overwhelmingly said, “Yes” to a 2 percent increase in Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) that allowed a start to plan, design, develop and fundraise beyond the HOT for a multipurpose arena that would be capable of hosting a variety of events.
Those events would be including, but not limited to concerts, family shows, sporting events, community and high school sporting events and ceremonies, rodeos and other agricultural and equestrian shows.
Much passion has been behind this process since voters agreed this would be not only an economic addition to Lubbock, but it is also an addition our community needs and deserves.
This site is available to continue communicating our efforts. While speed bumps have happened along the way – including the nationwide pandemic, supply chain issues and rising costs – we are in no way derailed.
We believe in doing this grand venture right and doing it right the first time.
Please follow us on Facebook at Lubbock County Expo Center as we keep you regularly updated on our progress. You have asked, and we will deliver! We’ve listened. Now, we look forward to letting you know more about how your initial vote will enhance our community’s quality of life for today and for generations to come.
