About The Cowgirl Gathering

The Cowgirl Gathering is a celebration in the heart of Fort Worth designed to showcase spectacular, inspirational women from all walks of life who embody the spirit of the American Cowgirl. This weekend takeover of the historic Fort Worth Stockyards highlights cowgirls’ skills in breakaway roping, team roping and barrel racing, while also showcasing exhilarating and engaging female speakers. It’s her heart and soul that makes a cowgirl who she is—determined and fierce and ready to take on the world—and we’re excited to showcase that spirit in the heart and soul of Cowtown this November. For more information, please visit
