If you ask a “local” what brought them to Jackson, they’ll likely tell you it was Jackson’s epic and legendary free skiing. If you follow up with what kept them here, they’ll tell you emphatically: Summer in the Tetons.
Some take refuge on the cool, ribboning Snake River, casting flies, rafting, or braving the whitewater in river kayaks. Others seek meditative, soul-touching experiences in our mountains’ dramatic and awe-inspiring peaks. Regardless of your draw to the Tetons, there is something here for everyone.
The best part of your summer getaway doesn’t stop short in the mountains either. With just three (maybe four if we’re lucky) short months to take in all that summertime brings, there’s a fervent energy that draws in artists and musicians alike every year.
From July 3 through August 27, the Grand Teton Music Festival brings renowned musicians from across the country to perform in Teton Village. Check their calendar and be sure to book in advance of your visit.
Take in the exceptional spread from local and national artists featured at our annual Art Fair on August 5-7. From fine art to ceramics, paintings, furniture, photography, jewelry, and so much more, be sure to plan your trip to accommodate this wonderful event.
Pick up a pair of cowboy boots from the Town Square, and head to the rodeo for a real taste of the Wyoming dazzle. Be sure to book your tickets in advance as they do book out quickly.
And of course, there’s the Teton County Fair. With all the usual rides and games, our fair is a great way to have a good time alongside the local community. Check the schedule for daily events, and enjoy a quintessential summer night at the fairground.
Regardless of your preference for activities, there’s something here to not only please, but wow everyone in your group. End your summer on a high note, and book your Jackson Hole adventure today. You will not regret a moment spent here.
