Art of the Cowgirl, a celebration of cowgirls and their contributions to the Western lifestyle and culture, will return to Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Centre in Queen Creek, Arizona, January 18-22, 2023.

“Women hold beautiful, important roles and have truly shaped the Western lifestyle and industry,” says Tammy Pate, Art of the Cowgirl founder. “Our event honors these women by showcasing their artistic talents and horsemanship skills, all to ensure the future of Western trades. We’ve put together a gathering unlike any other and are so excited to bring everyone together.”

Over five days, there will be a Western makers trade show, master artist workshops and horsemanship demonstrations, riding clinics and colt starting, an All-Women’s Ranch Rodeo, World’s Greatest Horsewoman competition, cattle dog trials, a live art auction, elite horse sale, live music, and more.

While Art of the Cowgirl celebrates women in the Western industry, the event also honors strong partnerships between spouses, friends, and families. All are encouraged to attend — men, women, and children alike.
