Spurring into action on May 25, our neighbors over the pass will be holding the nationally renowned "Old West Days at Jackson Hole."
This Saturday's festival will be the 31st annual celebration. Jackson Hole has long been referred to as "The Last of the Old West," and with Jackson's rich history, it's no wonder Old West Days is a favorite among visitors and locals alike.
Visitors from all over the country come to delight in the live music, theatrical entertainment, arts and crafts, delicious food, rodeo events and much, much more.
Center stage at this week-long extravaganza is the equally famous Mountain Man Rendezvous. Come marvel as pre-1840 mountain men celebrate with a Traders Row, Candy Cannon, Bow & Arrow Competition, Hawk & Knife Competition and Atlatal Competition.
The following Saturday will include a parade, Old West Brewfest (a regional beer tasting festival on the Town Square) and the Summer Kickoff for the Jackson Hole Town Square Shootout. Started in 1957, this is actually the longest running shootout in the country.
