A popular part of the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering is the Silent Auction, held in the lobby of the Elko Convention Center. Let your imagination and generosity run wild while you support cowboy poetry and culture by donating and bidding on original art, framed posters, carvings, jewelry, clothing, working gear, books, CDs, unique travel experiences and much more!
All items are donated by our generous Western Folklife Center supporters and proceeds benefit the Folklife Center and its premiere event, the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. Donations and questions? Call us at 775-738-7508 (toll free: 888-880-5885) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
