The show and sale of western art and gear will highlight an evening of dining and dancing.
More than 30 western artists will attend the National Ranching Heritage Center (NRHC) Summer Stampede, a western art and gear show followed by an evening of dining and western swing dancing.
Participants will have an opportunity to meet the artists as well as view and purchase artwork and western gear beginning at 5 p.m. June 20 in the museum galleries. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m., and Jake Hooker and the Outsiders will provide music for dancing on the patio.
Limited tickets are available and must be purchased in advance from the Ranching Heritage Association (RHA) website. The cost is $75 for the general public and $65 for RHA members.
The RHA is a nonprofit member organization established to support NRHC programs, exhibits and other activities that tell the ranching story. A portion of the proceeds from the art and gear sale will be used for NRHC programs.
