2024 Gathering in Alpine

Feb. 15-17, 2024

We are so excited to gather again with you in Alpine in February 2024! Make your lodging reservations now for somewhere in the Big Bend region, and come enjoy poetry, music, stories, and songs from women and men who know a lot about ranch life, livestock, hard work, and great music.

We've added a Thursday night supper and show, in addition to the Wed. night show rodeo benefiting the Sul Ross rodeo team — so much fun to be had! Members got early access to tickets. They are now available to all.

And our lineup of performers is stellar, including seasoned veterans and brand-new young faces from across US and Canada. Whether you love banjos, humor, classic cowboy poetry, thoughtful history, clear-eyed prose, great guitar work, yodeling, fiddle, or songs, the Gathering is your jam.

With 7 ticketed shows, 2 breakfasts, 3 suppers, and 38 free sessions to choose from, you'll find something to make you smile in Alpine.

Suppers at the Civic Center

Although there are some wonderful restaurants in Alpine, getting a table during the Gathering can be a challenge. Therefore, we've again chosen Roux Alpine, a local caterer with 5-star reviews, to offer suppers at the Alpine Civic Center. This year, suppers are available Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. You can purchase supper tickets when buying performance tickets. Seating is limited and tickets may not be available onsite.

Chuckwagon Breakfasts

A chuckwagon breakfast of biscuits, sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, and coffee will be served each morning outdoors at Poet's Grove. Tickets are $5 (tax included). Long johns optional but recommended.

Sul Ross State University

SRSU has a working ranch and is the birthplace of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. Learn more.
