National Day of the Cowboy

The cowboy is one of the most identifiable symbols of North America, with its roots in Mexico’s vaqueros who herd livestock on horseback. Vaquero traditions quickly spread across the South, and are now deeply instilled in the identity and culture of the United States. The National Day of the Cowboy commemorates the American icon and Mexican mentors whose image “transcends time, gender, ethnicity, and geographic boundaries,” explains Briscoe Western Art Museum president and CEO Michael Duchemin. The third annual National Day of the Cowboy begins at high noon, featuring bilingual museum tours, cowboy demonstrations, arts and crafts, food, craft beer and more. The Railhouse Band will perform live country music during fun family activities including barrel racing, horseshoes and a “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out” shooting gallery. Enjoy peach cobbler and biscuits served in the traditional cowboy style by Chuck Wagon Cooking, and cool down with free cold beer sponsored by Ranger Creek Brewing and Distilling. Herd up the family and mosey on over to the Briscoe to discover fun facts and artifacts of the cowboy and vaquero lifestyle.
