Cowboy traditions live on through the many rodeo events. The events span across the state and are held for most of the year. Come and enjoy the excitement of the rodeo atmosphere and the taste of barbeque. Cowboy culture is celebrated at the annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering and Old West Days, held every October.
