Keeping the Tradition Alive Fund

Let's keep cowboy poets, storytellers, and musicians performing through the pandemic! Contribute to our Keeping the Tradition Alive Fund to empower us to produce additional top-quality online cowboy poetry events. An anonymous donor has pledged to double-match all donations up to $10,000. So any dollar you give becomes $3!

Save $9 With Pre-Registration

If you register now, we'll keep you in the loop as performers are announced, and give you $9 off your screen ticket (access for any number of viewers on one screen).

What to Expect from Our Virtual Events

Cowboy poetry, music, and storytelling; personal insights from the performers; and the opportunity to see them in their working environments, filmed by a professional crew who understand horses and cattle and the lives of people who work with them. See the FAQ page for more info.

Our Usual Hosts: Sul Ross State University
