It's live! It's colorful! It's fun! It’s the online daily schedule for the 34th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering! The full daily schedule is embedded on our website and it's also a smartphone app.
This great system from Sched.com lets you access the schedule in so many ways. Check out the list at the right and make your selection between date or venue, type of session and more. You can even search by genre (poetry, music, storytelling, cooking, discussions, gearmaking, etc.), and you can even look at a list of the most popular events.
If you want to see where and when each individual artist is performing, just click on "Artists" at the top to choose your favorite performer and you can see the shows they will be in along with their bio! (We're still gathering the speakers and panelists together, but plan to have all of them available soon.)
And we're so happy this year to be able to feature our major sponsors on the daily schedule, as well as including them on the evening shows they are sponsoring, as a special thank you for their support.
A couple of tips for looking through the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering daily schedule:
As always, we make the distinction between "Ticketed Shows" that occur mostly in the evening hours, and "Daytime Programming."
Ticketed Shows appear in a deep blue color on the schedule, and those shows require purchase of individual tickets. Remember that Ticketed Shows showcase a combination of Western bands and cowboy poets that often you won’t see together during the day. Some artists only perform on ticketed shows.
Daytime Programming sessions include poetry, music, discussions, films and more, where only a Day Pass or Deluxe Three-Day pass is required for admission. However, this category also includes free and special invitation items, so be sure to check the description to see the full information on any item.
One more special note to the schedule, you may see that in the title and in the description, a cautionary note is added regarding the start and end time of a show or session, particulary in the Open Mics. Our schedule is occasionally tighter than the Sched.com system will feature. Please read the description to make sure you arrive on time.
There is a mobile app icon at the top of the right-hand column, and for your iPhone, Android & Blackberry, you can bookmark the app by signing up at https://ncpg2018.sched.com/mobile.
