NATIONAL DAY OF THE COWBOY
National Day Of The Cowboy is observed annually on the 4th Saturday in July. According to the National Day of the Cowboy organization, this is a day set aside to celebrate the contribution of the Cowboy and Cowgirl to America’s culture and heritage.
The NDOC organization is currently working to towards passing bills in many of the states to make this day an official designation. More information on their efforts on both the federal and state levels can be found on the NDOC website.
In the words of the former President Bush, “We celebrate the Cowboy as a symbol of the grand history of the American West. The Cowboy’s love of the land and love of the country are examples for all Americans.”
Celebrate with a cowboy you know and post on social media using #NationalDayOfTheCowboy. Enjoy a western novel, attend a rodeo or many other things to recognize and embrace the cowboy way of life.
National Day of the Cowboy was organized by the NDOC organization with it’s first celebration in 2005. The organization is working diligently on making this day “official”.
