Jackson Hole Holiday Events

The turn of the season in Jackson brings the promise of Christmas shopping on the town square, time spent with family and loved ones, and a warm cup of hot chocolate to warm up to after a day spent skiing on Snow King Mountain or at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

A few of the holiday events our team is most looking forward to this year:

This year on Friday, November 23 the Town Square Lighting is scheduled from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Santa Claus is scheduled to make an appearance as well, arriving on dogsled from the Jackson Hole Iditarod. The event is sure to be a delight with live holiday music, Christmas caroling, and refreshments. The official lighting of the antler arches will begin at 5:30 pm. Santa Claus loves Jackson Hole so much that he’ll be hanging around the Town Square every night starting December 15, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm until Christmas Eve when he needs to visit homes across the globe.
