29th Annual Gathering


2016 dates - August 11, 12, 13, 2016

Please check back for more updates

Again we've gathered up a great bunch of poets and singers who have been with us through the past 27 years and some new ones for this annual gathering. We think they are the finest group of reciters and singers available! We'll give them nine venues to perform in for two days and three nights, open our doors to the greatest audience in existence, and turn everyone loose to enjoy each other as they experience our event. More than 50 performers will bring their cowboy poetry and music to the stage and venues to share their heritage, and the culture of the American Cowboy.

Saturday, August 13

This year's poster artist is Steve Atkinson and the title of the art is “Tall Tales.”
