Western Slope Cowboy Gathering
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.
A long-running program of the Museums of Western Colorado, the gathering hosts a wide range of top local and national cowboy poets and western singers and presents two days and nights of good family fun, featuring great cowboy entertainment.
We take pride in gathering some of the BEST local and national cowboy poets and musicians for your listening pleasure right here in beautiful Grand Junction, Colorado.
