About Us

  Festival Board & Committee Chairs

We are a group of volunteers who love cowboy poetry, western music, cowboy movies and western art and gear. We formed a non-profit corporation 501(c)(3) in order to bring the best western entertainment and art to Monterey County and especially the historical City of Monterey. Our charitable partner is the Salvation Army. They have been living the cowboy way for some time.

As in the past, we pride ourselves on bringing the best of the best of both established and new and upcoming cowboy poets, western music entertainers. Our Art and Gear Show is one of the finest in the United States, heck, probably the world. Presenting the finest Western crafts from artisans, collectors and craftsman from around the country. All here in California's First Capital, Monterey Bay.
