The 15th Annual Gateway Festival will take place July 26-28, 2019 in beautiful Bengough, Sask. We are please to announce our initial line up which includes TROOPER, CHARLIE MAJOR, KIM MITCHELL, Kira Isabella, Kacy & Clayton, Mabaleka, Marissa Burwell, The Barrelmen and more.
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. (festival photos by Chris Graham)

The festival is located in the Bengough Regional Park at the south end of Main Street. Bengough is a small ranching and farming community just north of the historic Big Muddy Badlands. Reader's Digest recently listed the Big Muddy as 1 of 10 places in Canada that "every Canadian needs to visit."
Bengough is a 1.5 hr dive from both Regina and Moose Jaw. If you are travelling from the United States you will reach us just 30 minutes north of Scobey, Montana. The nearest international airport is located in Regina.
Camping is run by the Bengough parks board. Electric campsites are sold out for 2019. However, there is LOTS of space remaining and sites are available on a first come/first serve basis. The cost is $15 per night and the gates open for camping at 1:00 on Wednesday, July 24, 2019.
Camp sites are located next to the festival grounds and provide access to hot showers and washrooms, an outdoor swimming pool, a cook shack, and the golf course. Sites are conveniently divided into 'Family', 'Quiet', and 'Party' zones to help best match your weekend plans. Full power sites are completely sold out for 2019 but there is endless overflow camping with site selection on a first come/first serve basis upon your arrival. Don't let the word 'overflow' fool you, there is plenty of green lawn and trees to go around. For more info call 306-268-2909 or email email@example.com
Gateway Festival is pleased to host a variety of food trucks, vendors, and artisans on the festival grounds. Keep your eyes peeled, we will be posting a complete list of vendors in the coming weeks. If you wish to submit to become a vendor please email info (@) gateway festival.ca
If you forget anything you may need the festival is just a five minute walk from downtown Bengough which offers a grocery store, Bengough Drugs, and many other local businesses. It is also where you find the famed outdoor pool.
