24th ANNUAL COWBOY CHRISTMAS POETRY GATHERING –DEC. 7-8, 2012
Cowboy poets, singers and musicians from across the Southwest will meet in Wickenburg for the 24th Annual Cowboy Christmas Poetry Gathering.

The gathering is not a contest – there are no prizes and no winners, rather it is a place and time when cowboys, ranchers and folks involved in raising and caring for cattle and horses get together to celebrate the present in poetry, songs and story, just as they did 150 years ago.
