One of the Briscoe Western Art Museum's most treasured annual events, National Day of the Cowboy is celebrated on the fourth Saturday of July each year. Attracting Western fans of all ages to the museum's home on the River Walk, the day is filled with boots, hats, and all things cowboy, cowgirl, and vaquero. The celebration includes hands-on Western lessons like the art of the lasso, cowboy poetry, chuckwagon treats, and cowboy crooning filling the air of the museum's McNutt Sculpture Garden.
