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 31st Annual Durango Cowboy Gathering Parade, the largest motorless parade in Colorado, will take place on Saturday, October 5th at 10:00 a.m. The fun filled morning begins at 7:30 a.m. with a hearty chuckwagon breakfast at 5th and Main. Our 2019 Grand Marshals are the Cugnini family who operate the Hi-Country Cattle Auction. They have maintained the history and culture of the American Cowboy for over 90 years and we are pleased to be able to honor them in this year’s parade. Come join the fun and help support Durango’s western heritage. For more information, visit www.durangocowboygathering.org or call for 404-376-6392.
