Since 1916, we have collected and published folklore of Texas and the Southwest. Our books cover a variety of topics of interest. Members receive the annual publication with their paid membership and have the opportunity to submit their papers for publication.

Human beings long for connection—with our ancestors, neighbors, family, and friends. Collecting, preserving, and sharing folklore allows us to connect with our past and gives those who follow us an opportunity to continue that connection. How did our fellow Texans entertain, learn, mourn, celebrate the good times, survive the hard times, and conduct their everyday lives? Join us and share your own stories, traditions, and folkways.

Welcome

Welcome! Whether you're a longtime member of the Texas Folklore Society, a new friend, or if you're just checking us out, we welcome you! Take our new website for a spin! In April, 2020, our membership elected to move our home office to a new host institution, Tarleton State University. In Stephenville, the university has arranged for us to have a beautiful suite of offices, plus we will have a place to host events in Granbury, a bustling town for tourism, with restaurants, arts, festivals, and outdoor activities. While our belongings have moved, we haven't finished unpacking, so bear with us. As soon as we are ready for company, we'll let you know. Like everyone, we are anxious to be able to resume "normal" life and events of the Society.
