About the events:
Postponed due to Covid, many ElkFest activites will take place on October 2 & 3, 2021.

Elkfest is the place to be for those wanting to find that special pair of antler. Auctions of the last few years have raised record amounts of money, with seventy-five percent being returned to the Nation Elk Refuge for habitat enhancement and interpretive programs. Whether you want a single antler or are a craftsman wanting thousands of pounds, come to the largest collection of antler for sale anywhere at a single location. Besides the 6,000 to 9,000 pounds of antler offered by the Jackson District Boy Scouts at the Auction, there also are an abundance of antler offered at the Jackson Hole Rotary Club Private Antler Sale. The Rotary sale, held every year in conjunction with the Auction, has been going on for over twenty years, with many vendors returning year after year. 
Entry is free. Proceeds from the scout antler auction benefit the Headwaters District Boy Scouts and the National Elk Refuge.

The High Noon Chili Cookoff is a Jackson-favorite! This community event features amateurs and professionals serving up their best chili on Town Square. All-you-can-taste for just $15!
Ready to bring the heat and go for the coveted travling chili trophy? Enter here!

The Jackson Hole Brewfest was canceled in May of 2021, so this mini, local-brews-only event will fill your craving of craft beer from the Tetons. Local breweries and cideries will be pouring their best from 12 - 3 on Town Square.
