A private endeavor to celebrate the National Day Of the American Cowboy (always the 4th Saturday of July) and in so doing, garner and promote an appreciation of the poetry and music of the cowboy, a truly American icon. The annual performance at the Historic Jones Theater will host cowboy poets and musicians. Following the show at the Jones, there’ll be a Cowboy Rendezvous on the Silver West Feedstore patio.

Fences is what brings us together.
Fences is what keeps us apart.
But a fence is only as good as it’s gate,
The one you keep in your heart.
