The Good Oil Days Festival was created to celebrate Humble’s rich history in the oil industry, as well as to bring business into the ‘hub’ of the city. It’s one of the biggest events of the Northeast area of Houston where family and small businesses are joined together.

Whether this is your first time or you’re returning for another year, the Good Oil Days Festival has something for everyone. From food trucks and live entertainment to an exciting area just for kids, we promise you’ll get to experience a full day of fun!

Delbert Dawes and Howard Mittag got thePump-Jack working on Main Street.

Howard and Sharon Mittag

I can’t make this up… but as I Was walking by the pump-jack, Mr. Howard was preparing to start the engine and I spoke with him briefly on the podcast.  Then I continued walking down Main Street in Humble and started talking to Mrs. Sharon.  It wasn’t until a couple hours later that I realized they were actually husband and wife… and I had bet them back-to back at the crowded festival.  Both are wonderful people and introduced me and Oilfield Talk to several people.  Thank you!

William Authur (Billy) Sheffield


“A lonely historical marker sits on the side of FM 1960 outside of Humble, Texas. You would probably drive right past it. But, if you’re curious and stop to read the sign, you might also meet one of the last residents of Moonshine Hill, whose house is just behind that marker. Billy Sheffield is 93 years old and his family has been in the area for over 100 years.”
