Heber Cowboy Poetry Gathering Will Be Oct 31 - Nov 4

The 18th annual Heber Valley Cowboy Poetry Gathering and Buckaroo Fair will be held October 31st through November 4th, 2012, in Heber City, Utah.

The mission of the gathering is simple:

"To promote the cowboy way of life through music, poetry and art by holding an annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering and Buckaroo Fair and by giving back to the community along the way."

The event is very popular, with something for everyone. The cowboy poetry is a top draw. If you've never heard it live you are in for a treat. The poets are true performers - great entertainers. Members of the public are also welcome to try their vocal cords during the open mic sessions.

Country and Western music is also featured at the gathering, which attracts top artists. 2012 performers include:
  • Host Waddie Mitchell
  • Bar J Wranglers
  • Michael Martin Murphey
  • Sons of the San Joaquin
  • Suzy Bogguss
  • Joey + Rory
  • R W Hampton
  • Chris Isaacs
  • Haunted Windchimes
There will be cowboy grub, of course, along with cowboy church Sunday afternoon. There will also be writing workshops and other activities.

Hope to see you there.

- Dave Webb
