JACKSON, Wyo. — On Sept. 20, The Teton County Board of County Commissioners opened a 45-day public comment period for the possible adoption of updated Teton County Fairground facility fees.

Fees are outlined for the specific use of Fairground facilities including, Exhibit Hall, Grassy Arena, Heritage Arena, parking and event camping, Rodeo Arena and the horse stalls.

According to the staff report the increase in fees—although not significant throughout, may increase revenues for the Teton County Fairgrounds. The Fairgrounds manager and staff manage reservations, fee collections and enforcement of facility rules.

For example, the proposed changes show a more detailed fee list for the Heritage Arena fees, with hourly fee breakdowns depending on use and a new winter and summer fee list.

Heritage Arena fees as of April 6, 2020.

Written comments may be emailed to Teton County Fair and Fairgrounds Manager Rachel Grimes at rgrimes@tetoncountywy.gov, or mailed to P.O. Box 1727, Jackson, WY 83001.
