    About Yellowstone Songwriter Festival

    Join us for the 3rd Annual Yellowstone Songwriter Festival. For three days in September the streets of Cody, bars, cafes, and parks become a gathering place for songwriters. Park benches, bar stools, hotel lobbies, and parks become picking sessions. This is the place displaying songwriting at its highest level in the amazing mountains of Cody, Wyoming. The Yellowstone Songwriter Festival will feature hit songwriters from Nashville and Rising Stars from across North America including Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, Idaho,  Alberta, and Nashville sharing their songwriting  and stories with you.

    Twenty songwriters will perform in twenty plus shows bringing the stages, restaurants, coffee shops and bars of Cody with some of the best songwriters in the music industry. Each show will feature two or three songwriters telling stories, trading songs and showcasing their creativity.

    All we’re missing is you. We would like to invite you to beautiful and vibrant downtown Cody and we look forward to sharing this incredible weekend of songwriting, creativity and music with you.

    There’s something for everyone. See you in September!
