    39th Montana Cowboy Poetry Gathering

    39th Montana Cowboy Poetry Gathering
    and Western Music Rendezvous

    Montana Cowboy Poetry Gathering & Western Music Rendezvous is cordially inviting you to join us August 8-11, 2024 for a celebration of our Western ranching lifestyle and the heritage of the American Cowboy of the Upper Rocky Mountains.

    Located in the middle of Montana, Lewistown is everything Western.  We are surrounded by three beautiful mountain ranges; a ‘blue ribbon’ trout stream runs right through town; and our Main Street looks much as it did 100 years ago when cattle, lumber and mining were thriving.

    We will have 70 cowboy poets and Western musicians and 20+ Western vendors again this year. Don’t miss our red-hot vintage Western $2.00 raffle that everyone enjoys!  Be sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up with the latest developments.

    Come and join us for some pure mountain air and beautiful Charlie Russell sunsets–and our Montana Cowboy Poetry Gathering & Western Music Rendezvous!   We’re “Keepin’ It Cowboy,” from somewhere in the middle of Montana.

    Red Steagall’s 33rd Annual Cowboy Gathering

    “Thirty three years ago, a group of us gathered in the conference room upstairs in the Cowtown Coliseum. We all felt that Fort Worth was the perfect location for a cowboy poetry gathering. Even though we had 11 inches of rain that first weekend, we’re still here after over 30 years of celebration. We put together a program that, even today, celebrates the men and women who make their living horseback working cattle to provide beefsteak for the dinner tables of America. In 30+ years, we have continued to grow and serve as a platform to present competitions for our scholarship program awarded to young people which, as of today, exceeds $1,000,000. The award is made to deserving young people who want to further their education. Our audience is from all over this great nation as well as other parts of the planet. The excitement of the ranch rodeo, the entertainment value of the cowboy music and poetry presentations, the sights, sounds, and smells of the chuckwagon camp, and the time spent dancing to western swing music make for a fun-filled family western weekend. Our sincere thanks to all of the folks who have supported us for over 30 years.”  – Red Steagall
