Cowboy Poetry Gatherings and Music Revues

Gatherings across the West celebrate the heritage and history of ranching, cowboys, western music and the traditions of the rural West.

When Wyoming’s Cowboy Songs and Range Ballads event started in 1982 and Nevada’s National Cowboy Gathering started in 1984, they gave voices to hundreds of cowboy poets, musicians and artists. They also spurred on other gatherings across the West that celebrate the heritage and history of ranching, American cowboys, western music and the traditions of the rural West.

There are a number of other cowboy gatherings that take place every year throughout the West. The best part is you don’t have to be a cowboy to attend and enjoy the incredible performances and workshops at these events and shows.
