If you're looking for good clean Western / Cowboy Entertainment for a private function, gathering or festival, or any kind of event, then you've come to the right place - see the Entertainers Page. You'll also find a good selection of CDs, books and DVDs in the General Store and a list of events on the Gatherings Page.


The Alberta Cowboy Poetry Association 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 and rodeos, private functions, and many other events. They've performed all over the western provinces, in eastern Canada, and several States. Most have produced their own original material, recorded CDs and/or DVDs, and published books which can be found in our General Store.

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 and check out the numerous performers listed there.
