JACKSON, Wyo. — The Jackson Hole Hootenanny is returning to Dornan’s this summer.
Hootenanny Board member John Sidle confirmed this afternoon that the event will be returning to Dornan’s on Monday evenings this summer.
“We are definitely going back to Dornan’s. We met with management there and we are set to go back. We don’t have a firm date yet but it will be outside in the pavilion.” Sidle said.
Citing staffing shortages, the Monday night gig moved from Dornan’s to The Wort in October 2021.
Prior to the move to the Wort, the Hootenanny was played at Dornan’s for nearly 30 years. In the early 2000s, the event had a quick run at Snow King.
