Fall Arts Fest kicks off today

JACKSON, WY — An 11-day celebration of art in all forms — visual, culinary, wearable, and more — starts today.

The Fall Arts Festival is widely recognized as one of the mountain west’s premier cultural events. Featuring more than 50 family-friendly events, the week showcases hundreds of artists, dozens of local galleries, and attracts thousands of art enthusiasts each year.

The 35th annual FAF opened today with the 21st Annual Museum Jewelry & Artisan Luncheon at the National Museum of Wildlife Art.

Tomorrow offers a chance to celebrate Western fashion in all its forms. The Western Design Conference will host its opening party and fashion show at the Snow King Center from 6-10 p.m. WDC will continue through the weekend with exhibits featuring the best in western design.

Friday night, take a walk around town and enjoy a combo of culinary, visual, and musical art at Palates & Palettes Gallery Walk. Local galleries will open their doors to showcase their art, complemented by food, wine, and music. Visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art first — they’ll kick things off from 3-5 p.m. Then head downtown to browse the other galleries from 5-8 p.m.

Sunday is a busy day on the Town Square. First, 40 local artists will compete in an open-air, juried art fair, the 21st Annual Takin’ It to the Streets, presented by the Art Association of Jackosn Hole. While artists are hard at work, Taste of the Tetons and Sips on the Square will showcase local food, wine, beer, and spirits. All taking place right on the square.

And, of course, there are dozens of gallery openings and world-class exhibits all 11 days. See the full schedule of events on the JH Chamber of Commerce’s website to plan your art-filled week ahead.
