Immerse yourself in Modernism

Become a Volunteer

There are so many reasons to volunteer! First of all, you get into the events you volunteer at for free. Secondly, you’ll have a blast. If you are obsessed with all things mid-century, you’ll find your community and be able to make an impact on it. If you’re a homeowner, you get to see the home you live in through another person’s eyes, and they will remind you how cool your home is! If you volunteer to bring your mid-century vehicle, you get to show it off and celebrate with fellow enthusiasts. As a docent, you get to showcase homes and connect with the community. As a volunteer at the Mod Vintage Market, you get to be part of the behind-the-scenes magic, get a first glance at what comes in, and even dress up as a living mannequin! And there are even more volunteer opportunities!

Volunteer Opportunities Include

  • Home Tour Docents
  • Event Chaperones
  • Event Planners/Coordinators
  • Ticketing and Check-in
  • Setup and Teardown
  • Guest Appearances and Support

Nominate a location for a tour

Whether it is a home you own, or it is a noteworthy example of mid-century modern architecture in the Denver Metro area, we want to hear from you! Nominated locations receive a Denver Modernism Week sticker in the mail and are notified of this prestigious nomination.

A few tips for what kind of locations we’re seeking:

  • Homes with time-capsule features
  • Historically important buildings and homes
  • Architecturally interesting or documented
  • Restored to former mid-mod glory
  • Built between 1940-1970
  • Vintage spaces being reused in amazing, eco-friendly ways

Compete in the Miss Modernism Pageant

Every year we crown one lucky person and present them with a title, tiara, roses and all-access pass to Denver Modernism Week events. Winners receive a $500 shopping spree at the Mod Vintage Market and flight/two nights of accomodations to represent at Modernism Week in Palm Springs!!

From a song and dance to hoola hoops and ukeleles, the opportunities are endless to show off your unique talent and possibly win the crown!

“Volunteering at DMW is a blast. You get to see behind the scenes at all the events, get to know homeowners and fellow modern aficionados outside of your normal circle. Not to mention you get to go to other events to learn more about modernism in Denver.”

Show Off Your Car or Camper

Is your Retro Ride filled with turquoise Nogahyde? Got a Jetsons-inspired Glamper? Or maybe a daily driver that has all its original awesomeness, even down to the burn hole that Aunt Selma put in the back seat that she never told your uncle about…

If it’s vintage, fun, and it’s your pride on wheels, bring it to our Car and Camper show! Meet with fellow enthusiasts, talk shop with the friends of the Forney Museum of Transportation, and share your stories with our Mod Vintage Market visitors! You can even sign up to have your car displayed in front of one of our homes in our Neighborhood Home Tours!

Put me on the list!
