JACKSON, WYO. (PRWEB) – Each September visitors to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, can take in a spectacular range of cultural activities and outdoor adventures during a time when the days are long, the air is cooler and the streets are filled with artful offerings to nourish the soul. Presented by the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, the annual Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival returns for its 36th year, September 9 – 20, 2020, creating 11 magnificent days of interactive visual, culinary and historical art-related functions with the magnificent Teton Mountain Range providing a captivating backdrop to an energetic and creative scene.
September is the perfect time to travel to the charming mountain resort town of Jackson, and the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival presents more than 50 family-friendly events, many of them free, at a time when the summer crowds have dwindled and the scene has shifted to a cooler, calmer and more creative climate. As USA Today said touting Jackson as a fall weekend trip to plan, “Art lovers will enjoy September’s Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival, featuring nationally and internationally acclaimed artists, as well as great music and food.”
From a stay-open-late gallery walk called Palates & Palettes, featuring an international selection of art and complimentary wine and beer, to an open-air tasting fair known as the Taste of the Tetons where local chefs create innovative dishes for guests to sample on the picturesque Town Square, Jackson Hole arts cater to all the senses. Or explore the art of the cowboy on Historic Ranch Tours demonstrating how Old West meets New West in Teton Valley.
A signature event of the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival, the Western Design Exhibit + Sale showcases four days of contemporary and traditional Western-inspired functional art from furnishings to fashion by top artisans from across the U.S. Other festival favorites include the Showcase of Homes, perfect for architecture and design enthusiasts, with the opportunity to tour extraordinary Jackson houses and talk shop with the experts behind the designs. And at the amazing QuickDraw, visitors stroll among dozens of artists busily painting, sculpting and sketching their masterpieces in just 90 minutes, before the newly minted art is offered for sale in a live and lively auction.
The Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival is an extraordinary event that unites admirers of artists, art and nature in a magical mountain town that may be small in size but is big in culture and heart. Each day of the festival offers a chance to see, hear, taste, touch and feel something special, something bespoke, something inspiring, while fall foliage blazes from the trees of the dramatic surrounding mountain landscape. This spirit of culturally rich Jackson is at its peak during the Fall Arts Festival, known as the Rocky Mountain West’s premier cultural event.
