Celebrating it’s 29th anniversary the Cowboy Classics Western Art & Gear Show is a showcase for the contemporary western lifestyle and a tribute to the American Cowboy.

Located in the Youth Activity Building, Cowboy Classics is held in conjunction with the Arizona National Livestock Show and is sponsored by the Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation, with all proceeds benefiting the Arizona National Livestock Show Scholarship Program.

The show is an impressive assembly of some of the finest western talent to be found today. Showcased items include oil paintings, bronzes, silverwork, hitchings, leatherwork and furniture, drawn from the rich vital traditions of the cowboy.

Cowboy Classics Western Art & Gear Show artists do not have to pay a jury or entry fee but we will be charging $200-$250 for booth space (depending on size).  We ask that artists be on location during the event to visit with viewers.

To be added to the mailing list to consign your items to either the Gallery or the Mercantile, please contact the Arizona National Livestock Show Office.
