    Find your inner or outer cowboy…or cowgirl! Come celebrate our Western and Vaquero traditions in Monterey County! The Monterey County Fair and the Monterey Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival are “teaming up” and co-sponsoring a new free event, “Cowboy Day at the Monterey County Fairgrounds” that will be held on Saturday, June 4th from Noon to 6 PM at the Monterey County Fairgrounds, 2004 Fairground Road, Monterey (831) 372-5863. There will be great entertainment, contests, kids activities, horse demos, and delicious food, snacks and beverages available from the Monterey County Fair and the Monterey Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival.

    Bring the entire family and learn more about the Cowboy Way of Life and Western history and traditions. This very special event for all ages will include many fun cowboy-themed kids activities, including hat shaping, leather stamping and tooling, branding wood blocks, roping bales of hay, scarf tying, and more. There will be exciting roping and horse demonstrations in the Pattee Arena. Volunteers from several 4H clubs, FFA clubs, Monterey County Fair and the Monterey Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival will help coordinate facilitate all of these fun activities. Every child will also receive a free Cattle Country Activity Kit created by the California Cattlewomen.

    In addition, contestants for the beautiful and talented Miss Monterey National Horse Show Contest (ages 16-21) will be participating at the event, with demonstrations of their horsemanship abilities, scholastic ability, poise and personality. The coronation of the Miss Monterey National Horse Show will take place during the Monterey National Horse Show (July 7-11, 2011).

    During Cowboy Day at the Monterey County Fairgrounds, there will also be live Cowboy music as well as Cowboy poetry, with a special performance by the Monterey Amigos. A contest for the best-dressed cowboy and cowgirl (youth and adult) in both traditional and Mexican attire will include many prizes. All attendees who wear a cowboy hat will receive an extra ticket for the free drawing to win great prizes.
