There is no better place to experience the Western lore and mystique of the cowboy lifestyle than the annual Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering and Western Swing Festival. Every year, thousands of spectactors, cowboys and locals alike gather for the 'Best Gathering and Best Family Event' voted by the readers of American Cowboy Magazine.

The 22nd annual event in the Historic Stockyards: October 26-28, 2012, is fun for all ages filled with a variety of entertainment. Get your tickets now for the Friday or Saturday special edition Red Steagall Rodeo at Cowtown Coliseum. Shoppers can visit Mule Alley for cowboy goods and accessories. Last year, we scored a pair of vintage Justin Boots for just $20! Enjoy the chuckwagon cook-offs and set-up along Exchange Avenue. Of course, there will be live cowboy poetry and music as well.

So, boot up and come out to the Stockyards National Historic District this weekend for some cowboy fun!
