The goal of the Salado Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering is bringing together a group of poets, musicians, and storytellers who are doing their part to preserve the cultural heritage of the American West. This gathering will give these performers an opportunity to share their talents. These men and women are now, or have been in the past, a part of the working cowboy environment. This is the 4th year that Salado has hosted this event and the hope is to make it the best in the country by offering the true “working cowboy” culture and heritage. Cowboy poetry, music, and story telling is born in the dust of hard work.
Held in a quaint little village about 50 miles north of Austin the Salado's Cowboy Poetry & Music Gathering offers the opportunity to experience poets and musicians who are doing their part to preserve the culture and heritage of the American West.
