At a Glance

After a hard day on the trail, cowboys of the Old West entertained one another around the campfire with poems, songs and tall tales. The annual Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering continues this rich tradition by gathering singers, songwriters, storytellers, artisans and craftsmen in the west Texas mountains. Observe chuck wagon cooking and blacksmithing or try the Texas two-step while learning about life on the trail in encounters with performers.
