The area around Faith offers excellent hunting opportunities for antelope, mule deer, and whitetail deer. There are also ducks, grouse, and prairie dogs for hunting and many small stock dams for fishing.
Faith is also famous to paleontologists. There are three dinosaur dig sites within 40 miles of Faith.
Each August the cowboy town stages its annual celebration, "The Faith Stock Show and Rodeo".
