A Cowboy Way Jubilee is coming to San Angelo!


Cowboys who earned their spurs on television, musicians who capture the music of the Wild West and poets who write about the lonesome prairie are coming to San Angelo July 23-26 for the Cowboy Way Jubilee.  


The three-day event at Fort Concho is like a Comic-Con® for Cowboys.  Fans can get up close and personal with Western stars and authors and take part in workshops and demos. The Jubilee features old Western movies and TV series episodes, discussions, and the larger-than-life people who acted in them. There is cowboy music all day every day — that’s the “western” part of “Country and Western,” and special evening concerts. 

Guests are invited to dress up in period costume from the 1800s to the early 1900s and enter the costume contest. There’s a chuck wagon cook, food and vendors, with poets and cowboys and cowgirls spinnin’ yarns (that’s storytelling for citified folk). 

The Cowboy Way Jubilee begins Thursday, July 23, from 5:30-9 p.m. with a free sing-along. Friday the Fort Concho grounds are open from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. with concerts by Stephen Pride at 7 p.m. and Kristyn Harris at 9 p.m. Saturday the Jubilee is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with concerts by Martin & Pratt Duo (Caleb Martin & Gary S. Pratt) at 7 p.m. and RFD-TV’s Penny Gilley & the Texas All-Star Band at 9 p.m. I'll have a table for book signing throughout the event and I'll be performing as Daisy Wettermark at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Sunday events are 8:30-5 p.m. opening with cowboy church.  The Sureshot Awards banquet is 7-10 p.m. Sunday in the Fort Concho Stables. Advanced Reservations are required for the banquet.
