Alpine Poetry Gathering

The Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering is part of an American folklore revival that had its beginning in 1985 when Hal Cannon and other folklorists from our western states started the Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada. The second such event was the Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering that was started in 1987 on the campus of Sul Ross State University at Alpine. It's the oldest event of its kind in Texas. Other events were started at Prescott, Arizona, in 1988 and in Roswell, N.M., and Lubbock.

The Gathering exists to promote, preserve and practice an important part of the oral tradition of the American West. In addition to classical, traditional and contemporey cowboy poetry, the event includes presentations of cowboy music and storytelling. All sessions are on the Sul Ross campus on Friday and Saturday. Daytime sessions are free. A stage performance is held each night and a nominal admission is charged.
