Fall Community Events

School has started, the leaves are starting to change colors and nighttime temperatures are getting frosty: summer is yielding to fall. In Jackson Hole, Wyoming, fall is the time of some of the valley’s best events of the year. On Saturday, September 12, over 4,000 people will come to the town square to participate in one of the largest philanthropic events in our valley, Old Bill’s Fun Run, the primary fundraising event for the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole. The day is filled with a Fun Run and Walk, entertainment, food and informational booths for the multitude of local non-profit organizations that Jackson Hole is proud to support. Over the last eighteen years, over $111 million has been raised for these non-profits with a staggering $10M+ raised in 2014 alone. Tom Evans from Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty has made an additional pledge to support our community as a Business Co-Challenger.

Racers of a different sort will also be crossing the finish line in Jackson Hole on Saturday. The LoToJa Classic is a 200+ mile bike race beginning in Logan, Utah and finishing in Teton Village, WY. The race is the longest one day USA Cycling-sanctioned bike race in the country.

If the Arts is more your cup of tea, the renowned Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival runs from September 9th – 20th and offers more than fifty unique events. Highlights include the Western Design Conference, Palates & Palettes Gallery Walk, Jackson Hole Showcase of Homes, 20th Annual Jackson Hole Quick Draw Art Sale & Auction as well as special openings and events at galleries throughout town.
