For 26 years the Stony Plain Cowboy Gathering Society has been celebrating the cowboy scene through music, cowboy poetry and the visual arts & crafts.  The Stony Plain Cowboy Gathering Society, a Not-for-Profit society, is made up of a brave group of dedicated volunteers committed to

“The preservation and presentation of historical and contemporary Cowboy Music, Poetry and Art.”

In 2018, the Stony Plain Cowboy Gathering Society will be hosting the 26th annual edition of this legendary Gathering.  We are in the process of inviting a crew of great artists to join us in August, 2018. And with the stellar line-up of poets, pickers, and artists coming, the Gathering is shaping up to be the greatest ever and the Stony Plain Cowboy Gathering Society (The Posse) is ready and rarin’ to go!

The 2018 Festival will take place on August 17-19, 2018. This will be our 26th annual event, held at Stony Plain Heritage Park, 5100 41 Avenue, Stony Plain, Alberta. 

We hope you’ll also gain a new appreciation of the west’s rich and incredible cowboy heritage. We look forward to spending the weekend with you.
