Join us for our second annual Winnsboro Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering October 16-17th in Winnsboro, Texas! Winnsboro, one of just 43 Cultural Arts Districts in the state, is located in the Piney Woods of East Texas. Fall is a great time to visit with lots of activities taking place indoors and out – parades, trail rides, dancing, western art, and lots of poetry and music – just to name a few.

In addition to a great line-up of performers for the morning and afternoon sessions, this year’s Gathering features several special events.  Come hear Michael Martin Murphey on Friday at Winnsboro Center for the Arts and sign up for the Open Mic session Friday afternoon from 5-7 pm. RJ Vandygriff will kick off Saturday afternoon with his special presentation of “The Cowboy Ain’t Dead Yet.”  A concert featuring award-winning poets and musicians Saturday evening will bring the Gathering to a close.

Don’t Wait! Get your tickets now and don’t miss out on any of these exciting activities.
