Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival Highlights

The Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival is up and running once more! For valley residents, artists, gallery owners, and collectors from near and far, the Festival represents a seasonal return, full of celebration and inspiration. For ten days, a series of events welcomes members of the community into artistic spaces and brings art and cuisine–quite literally–into the streets. In addition, artisans and artists from across the creative spectrum maximize their opportunities to mingle with potential collectors, and collectors bid and buy work ranging from small sketches and miniatures to large paintings by world-renowned artists. It’s kind of a big deal.

At Homestead Magazine, we love community events that bring diverse community members out to toast the art in our own backyards. Here are some highlights and photos to get you excited for all the can’t-miss events happening from September 9-20! If you love architecture, interior design, and touring Jackson’s gorgeous neighborhoods, snap up tickets now for our own event, the Jackson Hole Showcase of Homes, which kicks off next weekend and provides an opportunity for intimate access to some of the valley’s most spectacular homes–plus the professionals who helped create them. (Sept 18 & 19, 11am-4pm, two-day self-guided tour)

We’ll see you at the Festival!
