We’re aiming to pre-register 70 cowboy poets and Western musicians and 22 Western vendors, again this year.   We’re already planning for our red-hot vintage Western $2.00 raffle that everyone seems to enjoy! We’ll also be adding some surprises and special happenings as we advance toward August, 2023. 

Hope your 2023 summer plans include attending the 38th MT Cowboy Poetry Gathering.  Located in the middle of Montana, Lewistown is everything Western....  surrounded by beautiful mountain ranges with a ‘blue ribbon’ trout stream running through town. Our Main Street looks much as it did 100 years ago when cattle, lumber and mining were thriving.  

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