Cowboy Culture Embraced in Downtown Winnsboro 

WINNSBORO, Tx — Winnsboro Center for the Arts presents the 2023 Winnsboro Cowboy Music and Poetry Gathering in downtown Winnsboro on September 30.

Two ticketed concerts at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. feature internationally-acclaimed performers telling stories, reciting poetry, singing, and playing instruments that embrace cowboy culture.  Featured entertainers are Dom Flemons, Andy Hedges, Pipp Gillette, Kristyn Harris, Teresa Burleson, and Jay Snider.

Prior to the concerts, the day is filled with the sounds and stories reminiscent of those heard around campfires during cattle drives of the 1800s. A chuckwagon sets the scene with cowboy activities while serving up beans, cornbread, and cobbler. A cowboy “outlaw” camp offers trail ride stories. Musicians and poets share cowboy, country, and western tunes and lyrics. Local restaurants keep the cowboy vibe going with specials like Lasso Lattes, Buckaroo Burgeers, Bronco Buster Sundaes, and Wild West Wings.

“Cowboy Tales,” an art exhibition, features the works of select talented artists with their interpretations and depictions of cowboy culture.

Daytime activities are mostly free. Concert tickets tickets are $30 and $50 and are good for admission to both shows. Visit to purchase tickets and get the full schedule or call (903) 342-1958.
