Join the Western Folklife Center

We rely on income from memberships as well as from donations and grants to keep us in business. Without the contributions of our members, the Western Folklife Center would not be able to provide the programs and experiences you value. Your contribution helps us preserve the cultural traditions of the American West. The benefits you receive as a Western Folklife Center member are available below, just click on the "Benefits" link next to each level for benefits specific to that level.

Please note, our membership system may not work on all browsers. At this time, Google Chrome and Firefox are not accepting our preferred certificate so we ask that you utilize Internet Explorer, or other browsers. Thank you.

The "Friend" level is for one person; we recommend the "Family/Dual" level for couples/two people wishing membership. Please include spouse name, if applicable, in  "name on membership card" section, not as an "additional" name. Thank you.

If this membership is a gift, or if you are renewing this membership on behalf of a friend, we request that you use the "Gift" box below, including that person's name in the "Comments" box so we can properly acknowledge them. Thank you.

If you are renewing and want to edit your account or change the primary name, please give us a call; otherwise, simply complete the membership steps. 

If you have any questions about your current level of membership and your renewal date, contact us at, or call Toll-Free 888-880-5885 and ask for the Membership Desk; local Elko Nevada residents please call (775) 738-7508.
