GATEWAY FESTIVAL 2018, The Kentucky Headhunters, Kathleen Edwards, Big Sugar


The 14th Annual Gateway Festival takes place July 27-29, 2018 in beautiful Bengough, Sask. Please note that we will be continuing to add artists in the coming weeks.

Over the past decade thousands of music fans from across the prairies and beyond have flocked to Bengough for the annual Gateway Festival. During the last weekend of every July the town's population grows by over 10x.

With three stages of concerts and workshops, a children's area with performers and activities, our "concerts and culture crawl", and many other events all delivered with small town charm the Gateway Festival truly has something for everyone.
