37th Montana Cowboy Poetry Gathering
and Western Music Rendezvous

Thursday, August 11 - Sunday, August 14, 2022


Welcome everyone to the 37th Annual Montana Cowboy Poetry Gathering and Western Music Rendezvous, August 11-12-13-14, 2022, Lewistown, MT.

The Gathering is a celebration of our Western ranching lifestyle and the heritage of the American Cowboy of the Upper Rocky Mountains.

Located in the geological center of Montana, Lewistown is everything Western. We’re 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!

Central Montana is proud of its history……for many on the great cattle drives north in the mid-1880’s, our Judith Basin was the last stop on a journey to a better life.  This year, our theme is “Cattle Drives North” with spotlight on legendary Teddy Blue Abbott & the DHS Ranch, just 40 miles from Lewistown and still operating.

So please, circle Aug. 11-14, 2022, and plan to escape to Lewistown for our 37th Gathering. You’ll enjoy what you hear, see and feel. We’re just “Keepin’ It Cowboy” and having some fun!
