Heber City Cowboy Poetry Gathering and Buckaroo Fair

An Anual event to promote the cowboy way of life through music, poetry and art.

Featuring top western entertainers, including Ian Tyson, the Bar J Wranglers, Sons of the San Joaquin, Red Steagall, Hot Club of Cowtown, Suzy Boggus, R.W. Hampton and Wylie & the Wild West, with renowned cowboy poet Waddie Mitchell.

What began in 1994 as a one-night gathering with local cowboy poets sharing poems in the Midway Town Hall is now a full week of entertainment at seven different venues featuring entertainers from all over the United States. Averaging more than 13,000 attendees each year, Heber City’s Cowboy Poetry Gathering has become one of the largest gatherings of its kind in the country.

We don’t want people to forget the cowboy heritage that established not only Utah but the West, The best way to experience being a cowboy without being ‘a cowboy’ is to be entertained by real cowboys. These performers live it, write it, rhyme it, sing it and perform all over the country.

A retired businessman who is now a local rancher and farmer in the Heber Valley, Tom Whitaker met up with a few cowboy friends in 1994 and discovered they all knew some cowboy poems. They decided to print up a few flyers, post them and see if anyone would show. More than 300 people attended the first gathering. After a couple of years, the event outgrew the Midway Town Hall and moved to Wasatch High School in Heber City. The new school offers a larger auditorium, more space and open areas to host the multiple events of Heber City’s Cowboy Poetry Gathering and Buckaroo Fair.

The annual gathering features concerts and shows; nonstop cowboy poetry and entertainment; western booths with arts, crafts and cowboy gear; Mountain Man Camp; Cowboy Church;  Wild West Shows; fiddle, guitar, harmonica and mule-driving clinics; Cowboy Express Train; Impact of the Horse, mustang horse competition; Cowboy Buckaroo Ball and more. Souvenirs include the Heber City’s Annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering and Buckaroo Fair poster, a membership pin and a CD with poems and songs from all the artists.

Come and see us every November.
