2015 REVIEW


2015 Stony Plain Cowboy Festival Press Release: 2015 08 28    
         
We did it! We maintained a quality show of entertainers that attracted a bumper crowd. We are well on our way to meeting our financial objectives so we can keep our show alive. Our goal is to establish our festival date on the 3rd weekend in August so our entertainers and guests can plan ahead to join us each year. We are very appreciative of the attendance and believe we found them and they found us by extending to a full weekend and wider advertising locally and in the west.

From the opening stage Friday at the Museum Founder’s Building to the Heritage Park Pavilion on Saturday, topped off with our Wrangler’s Pancake breakfast & Cowboy Church on Sunday, we thoroughly enjoyed hosting our 23rd Annual Cowboy Festival. Thank you for completing our survey. We are digesting your comments and suggestions to improve our show.   
    
Thanks to the generous support of our Sponsors and Volunteers.

Please join us in Stony Plain next year on August 19-21, 2016.

Thank you.    


 
A good time was had by all, so let’s do it again!  Please join us August 19-21, 2016 in Stony Plain.
