Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering – Event Schedule

October 3 - 6

Event Description

The Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering is an exciting, fun-filled event with evening performances and Saturday daytime sessions. Poets and musicians from throughout the country grace our intimate stage at The Strater Theater, performing classic and contemporary poems and songs that will bring tears to your eyes and keep you in stitches.

The 30th Annual Durango Cowboy Gathering Parade, the largest motorless parade in Colorado, will take place on Saturday, October 6th at 10:00. The fun filled morning begins at 7:30 a.m. with a hardy chuckwagon breakfast at 5th and Main. Montana’s High Country Cowboys will perform in front of the Main Mall beginning at 9:30. The parade will kick off with an old fashioned gunfight by the Diamond Belle Gunslingers. Our 2018 Grand Marshals are Kay and Dave James of the popular James Ranch in the beautiful Animas Valley. We will also be honoring the Durango Firefighters and First Responders. The legendary Wells Fargo Stagecoach will make a special appearance.
