Since 1988, Join cowboy poets for offerings of poems, songs and ideas with a western theme. Noted cowboy poets will join us on the Saturday Evening Performance at the Community Center. The gathering is not a contest - there is 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 over 145 years ago. The winners of the 30th Annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering student poetry contest will recite their award-winning poems in DCWM’s Learning Center. This event is free to the public; light refreshments will be served following the program.Saturday 1pm. DCWM is proud to sponsor the student poetry contest portion of Wickenburg’s Annual Christmas Cowboy Poetry Gathering, which is hosted by the Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce.
