Medicine Hat Cowboy Poetry Foundation

The Medicine Hat Cowboy Poetry Foundation is a registered non-profit organization that was formed to preserve and celebrate cowboy life in the Medicine Hat area.

We are pleased to partner with the Medicine Hat Public Library to deliver programs in poetry writing, collecting seniors’ stories and converting them to poems and songs, connecting youth to cowboy history and presenting live and online Cowboy entertainment.

We are able to provide tax receipts for donations to our foundation. Contact to donate.
