Just say that you're going to the Cowboy Festival and the following sponsors will give you a special "Festival Rate!" Don't forget to tell them, though. If you do need accommodation please stay at one of the following as they do sponsor the Festival.

The prices quoted below are as accurate as possible but if the motels have not supplied us with current information then these prices may not be correct .... please let us know if the prices here are not the same as what the motel quotes you. Also motels may block a number of rooms at the following prices and when they are gone, they will go back to their normal price. We have no control of this.

Please note: Some hotels that were sponsors in the past are no longer sponsoring us and have therefore been removed from this list - we'd appreciate you supporting our sponsors, thank you!

The 2017 Kamloops Cowboy Festival Poster

The 2017 Kamloops
Cowboy Festival Poster

The 2017 Kamloops Cowboy Festival poster has been chosen. It features the great drawing by local artist Sarah Schryver. You can see more of Sarah's work at her dad's booth, Thompson River Boot Company, in the tradeshow.

Self-taught artist, Sarah Schryver was born in 1991 and raised in the Interior of British Columbia. Being a bootmaker's daughter, Sarah has always had an artistic background and draws much of her inspiration from early western influences.

Sarah's primary goal is to capture a moment in time that connects people to the equine essence and the lifestyle that surrounds them. Having ridden for a professional horse trainer, her knowledge of

horsemen and their equine partners allows her to portray powerful moment, captivating stance and touching emotions in a unique contemporary manner.

Sarah currently resides in British Columbia's Thompson Plateau, making boots in her father's bootshop, the Thompson River Boot Company. She remains devoted to portraying the equine world through her charcoal art, as well as preserving the western culture through bootmaking.

Sarah's work has been internationally awarded and can be seen in both western and fine art publications.

Sarah will have her work on display in the Trade Show at the 2017 Kamloops Cowboy Festival. Her art will be displayed in a double booth shared with her dad, Daniel Gordon, Thompson River Boot Company.

The 2017 Kamloops Cowboy Festival Poster artist is Sarah Schryve
