Throughout the Livestock Festival cowboy poets and musicians will entertain festival patrons with lively music and prose. Cowboy poetry is a form of poetry which grew out of a tradition carried on by workers on cattle drives and ranches. After a day of work, cowboys would gather around a campfire and entertain one another with tall tales and folk songs. The tradition lives on through festivals and gatherings throughout the West, including the Cedar City Livestock & Heritage Festival. Performers will be on stage in the indoor Diamond Z Arena for both days of the festival.
