Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce

34th Annual Old West Days Honors

Old West Days, presented each Memorial Day Weekend by the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, is a celebration of culture and community.

Along with the cowboys and mountain men, there is a healthy dose of friendly competition. 

Director of Special Events, Maureen Murphy, commented, "People in Jackson Hole love a little competition, whether it's related to outdoor adventures, style, or skill. The Old West Days Parade is no exception!"

The Old West Days Parade, the longest-running horse-drawn parade in the west, started Saturday morning with a traveling celebration. It featured veterans, community groups, and entertainers. The Chamber would like to recognize the volunteer judges who had the difficult task of choosing entries to receive special recognition: Matt White with the Wort Hotel, Mollie Flaherty with Dishing, and Renee Leone with the Chamber.
