Celebrate the National Day of the Cowboy on July 27 at the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum.
The National Day of the Cowboy is an event that is celebrated around the country, including right here in Amarillo. Local groups have joined forces to teach, entertain and celebrate the eighth annual National Day of the Cowboy with the public. The celebration takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 27 at the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum. This free event will provide entertainment for the whole family.
In addition to the Hall of Fame, local partners include the Junior League of Amarillo, Amarillo Public Library, country music station 101.9 Blake FM, Panhandle Plains Historical Museum, Center City and the Amarillo Convention & Visitors Council. These partners are excited to participate by leading their own activity amidst the fun planned by the Hall of Fame. Visitors can look forward to these activities and events during the celebration:
Everyone is welcome to come learn more about American cowboys and their trusty mounts, American Quarter Horses. There is no admission fee, and free food and drinks will be provided.
The National Day of the Cowboy campaign was founded in 2004 to preserve, protect and promote the cowboy and Western heritage. The campaign lobbies for the passage of the national resolution designating the fourth Saturday of every July a permanent celebration on the national calendar. The campaign believes in honoring cowboys and cowgirls for their enduring contribution and their courageous, pioneering American spirit. For more information on the scope of this day as a national event, go to www.nationaldayofthecowboy.com.
