About the Annual Gala

For over 25 years, the Autry’s annual Gala has been one of Los Angeles’ most anticipated social events. This black-tie or dressy Western evening includes a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions (the most unique in Southern California), an elegant dinner, entertainment, and the presentation of the Spirit of the West Award.

Past honorees include Kevin Costner, Kirk Douglas, Clint Eastwood, Diane Keaton, Pulitzer Prize-winning author N. Scott Momaday (Kiowa), Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson, and many other distinguished individuals and foundations.

The annual Gala enhances awareness of the Autry's mission and secures funding essential to supporting the breadth of exhibitions, public programming, on- and off-site educational programs and research that distinguish the museum as one of the nation's most cultural institutions. Gala ticket sales and sponsorships add to the richness of these efforts that help define the Autry as the only institution to combine multiple Native American perspectives with Western histories in profoundly interconnected and multifaceted way.
