You wouldn’t want to miss this event meant to raise funds for several good causes. It is Columbia River Cowboy Gathering’s mission “to preserve the western way of life by providing a festival honoring the cowboy way of life and heritage through music, poetry, western arts and goods, keeping the festival wholesome, family oriented and at an affordable price”. It is the organization’s goal to “provide financial assistance to various community and non-profit groups within our community as well as allowing the Columbia Basin area to enjoy a weekend of western culture and be affordable to everyone and their family”. Incidentally, the charities they are serving this year are Rascals Rodeo and Kennewick FFA.
