Description

Join us for the 30th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering,
January 27 through February 1, 2014

The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering is a grand celebration of western people, their lifestyles and traditions. As January turns to February, cowboys, ranchers, rural and urban people travel en masse to the small community of Elko, Nevada, to join with friends, family and all those who share their love of rural life in the West. Together, they listen to poetry and music, learn about cowboy culture in the U.S. and around the world, experience great art, watch western films, learn a craft, and gather together to eat, drink and swap stories. For the last 29 years, thousands of people - both rural and urban - have made this pilgrimage time and time again. If you love the West, you must experience its greatest celebration. We hope you'll join us in Elko for the 30th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering
