National Day of the Cowboy

July 23 is National Day of the Cowboy…Yeeehaw!

Non-profit organization National Day of the Cowboy, founded in June 2005, works continuously toward increasing national support for National Day of the Cowboy, a day to recognize all cowboys’ contributions to America’s Western heritage.

The mission of the National Day of the Cowboy nonprofit organization is to contribute to the preservation of America’s Cowboy heritage so that the history and culture, which the United States Congress’s National Day of the Cowboy resolution honors, can be shared and perpetuated for the public good, through education, the arts, celebrations, gatherings, rodeos, and community activities.
