About the Gathering

Cowboy poetry in Alpine

The first annual Lone Star Cowboy Poetry Gathering will be held February 21-22, 2020 in Alpine, Texas on the beautiful campus of Sul Ross State University. Come join us in preserving the Western culture through some of the best cowboy poets and musicians in the country in scenic Alpine.

A Tradition of Cowboy Poetry

For 33 years, the Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Alpine was a cowboy poetry destination not to be missed. In February 2019, that gathering ended.

Determined not to let the tradition of cowboy poetry in this region die out, a committed group of volunteers formed a new organization, the Lone Star Cowboy Poetry Gathering.
