Silent Auction

Silent Auction

A popular part of the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering is the Silent Auction, held in the lobby of the Elko Convention Center, coordinated by the Nevada Task Force, a group of Elkoans who volunteer year-round for the Folklife 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 x222 (toll free: 888-880-5885) or email us at

  • Bidding opens Monday morning, the first day of the Gathering, and closes at 5:00pm Saturday.
  • Sign up for a bidder number at the Silent Auction desk in the lobby of the Elko Convention Center.
  • Check back often to ensure you're the winning bidder.
  • Winning bids will be posted next to the Silent Auction Desk, as soon as possible after the Silent Auction closes on Saturday.
