2015 Monterey Cowboy Festival Poster


Welcome to our 18th Annual Monterey Cowboy
Poetry & Music Festival!

This year’s Festival is returning to the beautiful Monterey County Fair & Event Center, located just a 5-minute drive from downtown Monterey. The Monterey Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival proudly celebrates Monterey's contribution to our Western heritage with cowboy poetry, music and a first-class Western Art & Gear Show. The Festival brings together people from all over the United States and Canada to enjoy and learn more about the "cowboy way of life," with its culturally diverse history that includes the Vaqueros, Californios, Mexican and Spanish traditions, plus our current cowboy culture and values.

A great mix of cowboy music and poetry performances are scheduled throughout the weekend to fit all schedules and interests. You won’t want to miss this year’s outstanding line-up of multi-award-winning performers
