THANK YOU ALL that came out to our event this year!  Again…sorry for the confusion sometimes!  Our two main buildings were being remodeled so we had to make do with two other buildings plus move the concert to a smaller one.   But, we had a good turnout and the entertainers did a great job – including the Idol Contest which was again a nail bitter!

Hope to see  all of you plus your friends next year!  We will have our main two buildings back!  Also, there will be some changes in scheduling – mainly, the Idol Contest will be on both daytime stages on Saturday and Beth’s Western Dance Group will move to a new time on Saturday.

2017 Headliner – Saturday Night – April 15th

Billy Dean

We are very pleased to introduce Billy Dean to our Columbia River Cowboy Gathering!  Billy is our Saturday Night Concert Headliner!

Just three of his hits that you may remember are:  Billy the Kid, Only Here for a Little While and If There Hadn’t Been You.   Please click on 2017 Entertainers in the menu to see his complete Bio.

Billy recorded and produced the 2004 album “Let Them Be Little” on his own.  Dean knew this album would either reintroduce him to the country format or be his swan song.  But he wanted to show the world “that I still had some good music left in me”.

2017 Friday Night Sub-Liner

 Gary Allegretto

We are very pleased to welcome Gary Allegretto -“Harmonicowboy”- as our Friday Night Sub-Liner!  You are going to love him!  Gary is a cowboy singer/songwriter/musician whose rare abilities on the harmonica are virtually one-of-a-kind. His jaw-dropping performances have captivated audiences at concerts and festivals around the globe!

He will be putting on a “Playshop” (a workshop but it’s too much fun to call “work” so he calls it “play”) Saturday at noon which will go for 90 minutes.  You can sign up and learn how to plan the Harmonica (the 1st song in 30 seconds!) – and you get to keep the Harmonica!
