We’ll be at the Cowboy Symposium in Lubbock on September 6 and 7. The 26th Annual National Cowboy Symposium & Celebration (NCSC) will be held September 4 – 7, 2014, at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center in Lubbock, Texas. The purpose of the NCSC is to celebrate and preserve our Western heritage and cowboy culture for those who know and love it, and to introduce new audiences to the heritage and culture so they may embrace it as well. The event schedule includes entertainers, poetry and storytelling, western writers and authors panels, film and movie seminars, a Youth Wild West Day, horse-handling demonstrations, a horse-themed parade, Native American Indian activities and presentations, the ever-popular Chuck Wagon Cookoff, and exhibits of Western artworks and merchandise. Currently, the 2014 NCSC is slated to feature more than 60 cowboy and cowgirl poets, musical acts, storytellers, more than 100 exhibit spaces filled with the best in Western art and goods, chuck wagons, and other special presenters and presentations. The event also includes the National Championship Chuck Wagon Cookoff. The NCSC is truly the premier event of its kind in the country!
