Visit Jackson Hole year round for an assortment of fun, family-friendly festivals. From summer to winter and everything in between, the city offers a unique lineup of cultural celebrations that will hold your attention and inspire your imagination.
Being a western town, Jackson Hole holds an annual “Old West Days” festival. Visitors flood into the city to enjoy western-themed events, from live music and theater, to rodeo. A similar event takes place every Monday through Saturday at 6 p.m. on the Town Square, where the Jackson Hole Shootout takes place. This free, daily spectacle provides modern audiences with a glimpse of 19th century vigilante justice, and conjures up memories of great western films like The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and True Grit.
During the holiday season, you’ll want to head to the Town Square for the lighting ceremony – a timeless annual festival. Featuring Christmas carol choirs, hot chocolate, and other festivities, this event welcomes Santa Clause into Jackson Square. Santa then stays in Town Square for around a week preceding Christmas Day, meeting the children and listening to their wish lists.
