Now in its 28th year, Red Stea­gall’s Cow­boy Gath­er­ing is all about cel­e­brat­ing the myr­iad aspects of cow­boy cul­ture. Start­ing with a her­itage trail ride, the event kicks off with a Longhorn trail drive right through the heart of the his­toric Fort Worth Stock­yards. Once there, the Cow­town Col­i­seum plays host to a ranch rodeo, stock-dog con­test, and in­vi­ta­tional team rop­ing.

On the lawn of the Live­stock Ex­change build­ing an ex­pan­sive chuck­wagon camp is on dis­play, and on the Mule Al­ley stage, cow­boy mu­si­cians and poets per­form all week­end. The event also fea­tures an auc­tion­eer con­test and youth fid­dle and po­etry con­tests. Top­ping it all off on Sun­day morn­ing is cow­boy church.
