About The Event

Local & National Cowboy Poets & Musicians

Cowboy poetry grew from a time when, after a day of work, cowboys would gather around the campfire to occupy and entertain one another with tall tales and folk songs. This form of poetry grew out of a tradition of extemporaneous composition carried on by workers on cattle drives and ranches.

Cowboy poetry continues to be written and celebrated today through events like the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering held every year in Elko, Nevada. Including “roundups” dedicated to cowboy poetry, as well as Cowboy Poetry week which is celebrated each April throughout the United States and Canada.

The Western Slope Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering is being made possible in part thanks to the support of the Museums of Western Colorado.
