The 16th an­nual South­east­ern Chuck Wagon Gath­er­ing re­turns, cel­e­brat­ing all things cow­boy at Booth West­ern Art Mu­seum in Cartersvil­le, Ge­or­gia. The chuck wagon-filled event promises a taste of the Wild West—lit­er­ally. Rec­og­nized as one of the best an­nual food fes­ti­vals in Ge­or­gia, the event fea­tures a cow­boy cook-off you have to taste to be­lieve, with South­east­ern sta­ples like beef, pota­toes, beans, cob­bler, bis­cuits and corn­bread.

Although food is the fo­cal point of the event, the fun doesn’t stop there. Vis­i­tors can chow down on cow­boy cui­sine while en­joy­ing an en­ter­tain­ment lineup that in­cludes live West­ern mu­sic per­formed by Cather­ine Thomp­son, a Cow­boy Po­etry CD re­lease of Con­tem­plat­ing Life by Tom Ker­lin with mu­sic by Jim Dorsett, and a singer/song­writer work­shop (tick­eted sep­a­rately) with Tony Arata, who wrote Garth Brooks’ The Dance. Leg­endary chuck wagon cook and steak­house owner Tom Perini will also share his sto­ries of cook­ing for pres­i­dents and celebri­ties

in Cow­boy Cook­ing: Then and Now.

In­side the mu­seum, ac­tors por­tray­ing Toy Story’s Woody and Jessie will pro­vide plenty of photo ops for the whole fam­ily, while au­thor Jim Rho­den reads his chil­dren’s book Ad­ven­ture of Cow­boy Lit­tle and Cow­boy Small: The Mys­tery of the Lost Map.

In ad­di­tion, vis­i­tors will have the op­por­tu­nity to meet his­tor­i­cal fig­ures from the art­work in the Booth Col­lec­tion in the mu­seum’s Art Comes to Life.

While in the mu­seum, vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to view Mood and Tone: The Art of T. Allen Law­son, Bob Kol­brener: 50 Years in the West, Trea­sures from the Vault—15 years of Col­lect­ing at Booth Mu­seum and Mid­dle & High Schools Art Ex­hi­bi­tion.

To end the evening on a high note, vis­i­tors are wel­come to mo­sey on over to the Grand The­atre for Cow­boy Con­cert with Texas-bred pow­er­house Kristyn Har­ris.

Fes­tiv­i­ties for the South­east­ern Chuck Wagon Gath­er­ing will take place both in­doors and out­doors at the Booth West­ern Art Mu­seum in Cartersvil­le, Ge­or­gia.

The Booth West­ern Art Mu­seum will host the 16th an­nual South­east­ern Chuck Wagon Gath­er­ing.
