Poetry and BBQ Cowboy Poetry poets onstage

One of the most popular events each season is the April Poetry and BBQ, en plein air poetry reading held in honor of National Poetry Month.

Past featured poets have included:

Naomi Shihab Nye, Tony Hoagland, Brian Turner, Ken Hart, Shane Seely, Claude Wilkinson, Edith Shomer, Judson Mitcham, Patricia Waters, Rick Campbell, Sylvia Curbelo, Carol Frost, Michael Hettich, Campbell McGrath, Peter Meinke, Lawrence Hetrick, Lynn Knight, and Sean Sexton, and many others.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, 2020’s Poetry & BBQ was cancelled. We are planning for a safe, distanced 10th Annual BBQ this Spring of 2021. To stay up to date, sign up for our weekly newsletter!
