You can find many Texas Folklore Society members at meetings of "sister" organizations, some of which reserve entire panels just for our members who give folklore-related papers. Other members set up information booths to share information about the TFS and our publications and activities. Please consider attending one of the following events of these organizations we support.

Upcoming events

    Lubbock was the site of the 102nd Annual Meeting of the Texas Folklore Society. If you didn't get a chance to join us in April of 2018, take this opportunity to visit the Hub City and see all that this great West Texas city has to offer.

    The National Cowboy Symposium attracts thousands of people from all over the world. Join Sara and Wallace McKee and all the other Lubbock TFS folks when they celebrate the culture of the cowboy and the Old West. Contact us in the main office if you'd like to volunteer to help spread the word about folklore at this unique cultural event.

    • Austin, Texas

    Dates for the Texas Book Festival have coincided with George West Storyfest for the past couple of years, but this year they've changed. Now TFS members can attend both events! We are, after all, "bookies."

    The main office is looking for TFS members who can help share information about the TFS with those attending one of the biggest "book" events in the state. Contact us in the main office if you plan to attend this event and would be interested in volunteering or, better yet, coordinating a group of volunteers who can man the TFS booth.

    Tens of thousands of book lovers gather to connect with authors and publishers close to the State Capitol. Go to www.texasbookfestival.org for more information.
