This auction is now closed. 

The two winning bidders for this auction were Californians: the Ernst's of Hemet and Jamie Bean of San Diego.

In this silent auction, the organizers of the 2007 Stagecoach festival offer a generous donation of premium VIP tickets to their star-studded event, May 5-6, 2007, 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, a new event created by Goldenvoice, the organizers of California's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival and many other top events, will have tents devoted to cowboy poetry, rural Americana and storytelling, along with Western music, bluegrass, and country music. 

Western music, cowboy poetry, and storytelling performers will include Baxter Black, Don Edwards, Cowboy Celtic, Red Steagall, Waddie Mitchell, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Riders In The Sky, and Sons of the San Joaquin. Other entertainment includes Garrison Keillor, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Earl Scruggs, Kenny Chesney, Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, and Ricky Skaggs.

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


The auction is for two 2-day, VIP General Admission passes. Those 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. Parking is included.

Bidding information below



Bidding on this item closed on March 23, 2007 at noon, Pacific time.

The fair market value of the two Stagecoach VIP tickets is $598. Amounts over the fair market price are tax-deductible according to Internal Revenue Service regulations.

Our thanks to Stagecoach and Goldenvoice for their generous donation.
