The Alberta Cowboy Poetry Association (ACPA) was established in 1987 to promote and preserve our rich western heritage through cowboy poetry, western music, and story telling.
Our members have entertained at cowboy gatherings, municipal events, western heritage days, stampedes, rodeos, private functions, and many other events. They’ve performed all over the western provinces, in eastern Canada, and several States.
Many have received accolades from Cowboy Poetry and Western Music industry leaders. If you’re looking for authentic cowboy entertainment for your event, go to our Entertainers Page .
