Big Brother, Big Sisters of America; Boys & Girls Clubs
The Wild West Fest is a small festival specifically designed to share Telluride with 50 inner-city youth from Big Brother, Big Sisters of America and Boys & Girls Clubs from across the United States. During their week in Telluride, the boys and girls participate in drama, dance, horsemanship, fly-fishing, golf, and the Rock & Roll Academy.
The Wild West Fest was created by the Sheridan Arts Foundation, which raises $50,000 each year to run the program. Those interested in contributing and helping should contact the Sheridan Arts Foundation, (970) 728-6363.
