Maple Creek Cowboy Poetry was started in 1989 and was the creation of Doris Bircham and Kim Taylor.

The first effort was one day of performances and presentations by mostly local talent.

It has grown into a 3 day event drawing participants from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and points in the United States.

Attendees have come from as far as Britain, Europe and Australia.

Maple Creek hosts one of the largest Cowboy Poetry Gatherings in Western Canada.

We would be pleased to have you join us to celebrate our Western Heritage with humour, music, poetry and art.
