Win BIG with the National Cowboy Symposium & Celebration

Hey y’all! It’s that time of year again. Fall in Lubbock means cooler weather, Texas Tech football and, most importantly, the National Cowboy Symposium & Celebration. If you want to get in on the celebration, we are going to give you a chance to win a two-night stay at the MCM Eleganté Hotel, which is within walking distance of the event, plus two Wrangler passes that are valued at $130 each. Read on for more info. The 26th Annual National Cowboy Symposium will be September 4-7 at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center. There are so many events featured this year at this annual event. Get the kids involved in the youth Wild West day, or go listen to some cowboy poetry and storytelling. There are also exhibits and a horse-handling demonstration to go see. One thing is for sure, the National Championship Chuck Wagon Cook-off never disappoints. Here are some pictures from last year’s event:

A cowboy poet, Alvin G. Davis, created the National Cowboy Symposium & Celebration after participating in a cowboy poetry gathering. Davis wanted to create a similar event right here in Lubbock, so the National Cowboy Symposium & Celebration began 25 years ago. More than 3,000 people from across the country attended this first gathering, and the crowds have grown since then. Now for the good stuff! If you’d like to put your name in the cowboy hat to win, here’s what you need to do: Leave a comment on our blog and tell us why you’d love to come to this year’s National Cowboy Symposium & Celebration. We will announce a winner on Friday, August 29th. Good luck!
