Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival

fall arts festival

The Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival is widely recognized as one of the premier cultural events in the Rocky Mountain West. Please join us September 5-16, 2018 for the 34th annual celebration.

Thousands of art enthusiasts are drawn each year to experience the diverse artwork and breathtaking natural surroundings that make Jackson Hole a leading cultural center. Visitors will appreciate the works of nationally and internationally acclaimed artists along with an exceptional array of events featuring music, cuisine, and wine. More than fifty events round out the festival. Keep up with the latest news and information about the arts in Jackson Hole year-round via Facebook!

The 33rd Annual Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival held in 2017 was a remarkable success! With a mix of sun and snow, the event inspired local and visiting artists and infused the economy with excited art enthusiasts. The highlight of the festival was the QuickDraw Auction, which included the sale of the featured Fall Arts Festival Painting “Rise Above” by Mark Keathley. The painting sold for a record-setting $77,500. Learn more.

Relive the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival with the signature wine from Jackson Hole Winery. Available at The Liquor Store of Jackson Hole, the Syrah and dry Riesling varieties make perfect souvenirs and gifts! Learn more.
