How you helpThroughout the year, more than 400 volunteers —both local and from out of town— support the Western Folklife Center’s activities. Volunteering with us is a great way to contribute directly to our mission, as well as meet wonderful people, support rural culture, and become part of a community.
About usLocated in the historic Pioneer Building in downtown Elko, Nevada, the Western Folklife Center is both a local and a regional nonprofit cultural center with an exhibition gallery, 300-seat theater, 20-seat black box theater, historic saloon and gift shop. Our exhibitions, educational programs, national radio and television programs, research and preservation projects, and our premier event, the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, explore and give voice to traditional and dynamic cultures of the American West.
