Jackson Hole Local Events

Experience all that makes Jackson Hole a bucket-list destination.

Check out these local events below!


Every Summer Evening at 6pm

A Wyoming tradition since 1957, the Jackson Hole Town Square Shootout, a short walk from Snow King Hotel, happens every summer evening, except Sundays – there’s no shootin’ on Sundays! Enjoy the show starting at 6pm in the town square, and don't worry about any outlaws, the Cache Creek Posse will be there to protect the women, children, and citizens of Jackson!


Fridays from 9:30pm - 11:30pm (May - September)

Thanks to Wyoming Stargazing, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Jackson Hole, the public can “explore the extraordinary in the ordinary.” Join Wyoming Stargazing on Fridays in Rendezvous Park, a 15 minute drive from Snow King Hotel, to learn more about the stars above and look through a Dobsonian telescope for a view of planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, and more!


May 26th - August 31st - starting at 8pm

Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer season, the Jackson Hole rodeo is where the west is still wild! Steeped in tradition, you don’t want to miss watching our local cowboys and cowgirls hold on for a wild ride on a bucking bronco or brave the dangerous bull riding. The fair grounds are an easy 15 minute walk from the hotel.
