29th Annual Gathering of Cowboy Poets Set for mid-August 

One of Prescott’s most popular events will take the stage at Yavapai College Performing Arts Center on August 11, 12, 13, 2016 at 7pm. 

More than 50 authentic cowboy poets and singers will perform for two days and three nights to share their heritage and the culture of the American Cowboy. Featured performers include Jim Jones, Mary Kaye and R.W. Hampton. The theme for this year’s gathering is “Dust N' Doggies" and features a poster by artist Marcia Molnar.

Attendees can enjoy free day sessions or ticketed night performances, enjoying stories and songs about the colorful culture and history that celebrate the true American Cowboy. 

The Arizona Cowboy Poets Gathering has maintained a standard that has been abandoned by most other gatherings: that of inviting men and women who are now or have been in the past a part of the working cowboy’s environment and workplace. It is respected by the cowboy poets as one of the best gatherings in the country because it helps maintain the true “working cowboy” culture and heritage.
