The Oil Palace continues to provide a location for concerts and various events in East Texas. It needs a lot of updating, but not sure that will ever happen.

Great place for outdoor activities indoors. Lots of parking, Plan your own agendas. Attended circus, rodeos and concerts, all family friendly.

Came here for the circus. Didn't get let in when said we would. 100 of us crammed in entrance with no airflow. Rickety bleachers, junky bathrooms. Wouldn't want to come here often with family.

Plenty of parking. Nice and huge venue. Been here several times and will return. This is not an arena, just an FYI.

Back in the day, this was the place to be for concerts and most local events...but that was then. It has gone so far down hill it is terrible. The parking lot smells like backed up sewage and they dare to charge up to ten...More

Unfortunately the Oil Palace needs some serious updating and more organized parking. It's always super hot in the building, the bathroom lines are long, and there aren't enough people working concession. Or maybe it's just not organized. The seats and stands are uncomfortable. I wish...More
