Town Square Lighting

A breathtaking event! Come and watch as thousands of bulbs bring the famous antler arches to life!

Join Santa and his elves in the countdown to Jackson's Holiday Season! This community event features a visit from Santa himself, holiday music and carols, cookies and hot chocolate, the Winter Windfall kick-off and of course, a stunning lighting display to kick off the holiday season in our Winter Wonderland.

5:00 PM: Festivities are open! The first 500 attendees to the Chamber tent recieve a complimentary Winter Windfall ticket. Troop 268 will be handing out hot cocoa from McDonalds and holiday cookies from Albertsons, while the Jackson Hole Community Band and the JH Chorale will fill the square with carols and holiday cheer. 
5:30 PM: The countdown to the season begins! Jackson Hole is a winter destination unlike any other, and this event kicks it all off. Be here to help us countdown to the moment we light up the square! When the count hits zero, the square will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland complete with thousands of twinkling lights, a cozy home for Santa, and holiday music for all to hear.
5:40 PM: The bright lights will call Santa to the Square. As soon as the sqaure is lit, look for his grand entrance, ona  local fire truck, from under one of the arches. Families can line up to tell Santa their wishes, or plan to come back to the Square later in December for Santa on the Square.
7:00 PM: The night's festivities come to an end, but there's more to come throughout the holiday season and rest of the winter!
