We’re gathering up a great bunch of poets and singers who have been with us through the past 31 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 five 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 40 cowboy poets & musicians will bring their cowboy poetry and music to the stage and venues to share their heritage, and the culture of the American Cowboy.
