Our mandate to promote and preserve cowboy heriatge in BC was definitely met this year ... starting with a Kamloops City proclamation declaring "BC Cowboy Heritage Week", then a BC Government proclamation declaring "Cowboy Heritage Week", then the Honourable Judith Guichon Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia opened the Festival and to top things off we had a letter / message from the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada! see the whole story

Information on the BC Cowboy Hall of Fame can be found here: BC Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Archives Page has photos and bios of all the inductees.
