Bidding for this auction is now closed.

In this silent auction, the organizers of the 2008 Stagecoach festival offer a generous donation of premium VIP tickets to their star-studded event, May 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2008, at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, California.

Proceeds from the silent auction benefit the Center for Western and Cowboy Poetry, which sponsors CowboyPoetry.com, Cowboy Poetry Week, the Rural Library Project, and all of our activities.

Stagecoach, an event created by Goldenvoice, has been extended to three days in 2008.  Goldenvoice organizes California's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival and many other top events. The Stagecoach festival has tents devoted to cowboy poetry, rural Americana and storytelling, along with Western music, bluegrass, and country music.

Western music and cowboy poetry performers include Wylie & the Wild West, Michael Martin Murphey, Waddie Mitchell, Don Edwards, Sons of the San Joaquin, Riders in the Sky, Red Steagall, and Ian Tyson.

Other performers include EAGLES, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, The Judds, John Fogerty, Trisha Yearwood, Dierks Bentley, Dwight Yoakam, Taylor Swift, Earl Scruggs, Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson, Trace Adkins, Mike Ness, Glen Campbell & family, and many more.

There will be art and gear exhibits and seminars. Find all the details at the Stagecoach web site.


The auction is for a set of two 3-day, VIP General Admission passes. The passes include access to the VIP area adjacent to the main stage. The VIP area includes additional food & beverage vendors, comfortable seating, shade, and additional restroom facilities. Seats are not reserved. 


Bidding closed on Monday, April 21, 2008, at 8AM, Pacific time
