The eighth annual Cache Valley Cowboy Rendezvous opened today and continues through the week. The non-profit organization promotes the rich culture of western and agricultural heritage through music, poetry, art, dance and an educational outreach program.
Chairman Dale Major says the opening events will be held in local schools.
“We have six entertainers that are spending the whole week (in Cache Valley),” Majors explains. “They are doing music workshops, they are doing creative writing workshops, they are doing history workshops, Utah history and western history. There is quite a bit that goes on this week.”
The events in local schools is made possible by a grant donation from the Sorenson Legacy Foundation. Major says it provides an opportunity for professional musicians and storytellers to visit schools and present school assemblies, class musical instruction and workshops, creative writing classes, and hands-on opportunities to enrich learning.
