Throughout the year, more than 400 volunteers support the Western Folklife Center in our mission to document and preserve the cultural traditions of the American West.
Volunteering with us is a great way to contribute directly to these goals, as well as meet wonderful people, support rural culture, and become part of a community.
During the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, the volunteers help visitors, take tickets, tend bar, drive shuttles, work in the gift shop, and much more. As thanks, each volunteer receives a Deluxe Pass pin allowing free entry to all non-ticketed daytime sessions and the program book.
At other times of the year, we rely on volunteers for help at special events, distributing posters/flyers, assist in the office, act as exhibit tour guides, and put together exhibits.
