Apply to Become a Performer

One function of the Steering Committee is to select performers.  Normally, we try to include 2 or 3 new entertainers each year.  This is usually done in September.   If you are interested in performing, please mail a bio and CD (or USB flash drive) of you performing to the address listed below:

South Texas Cowboy Gathering & Western Music Festival
P. O. Box 851
Seguin, TX 78156

We usually have more applicants than our budget and space on the program will allow.  If you were not selected to perform this year and/or wish to be considered for a future Gathering, you may wish to participate in the Open Pickin’ at our Friday Campfire Kickoff.  This is a great way to showcase your talent during informal round robin performances while sitting around the campfire. No sign-up required AND no mic provided.


Volunteers are needed to help us 1) with advance preparations and 2) during the weekend of the SOUTH TEXAS COWBOY GATHERING.   Volunteering is a great way to meet new folks.   Here are some of the many ways you can help:

Advance Preparations:

  • Hang posters at area businesses

During the weekend of the Gathering / Festival:

  • Work Ticket Booth, Beverage Booth or CD / Book Sales Booth

  • And much more
