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)

We are proud to be a family friendly event, offering children's entertainers on Saturday and activities all weekend.
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.
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 2015 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.
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.
