We missed the festive vibe Fourth of July in Jackson Hole brings, and we are excited to be celebrating it this year. People come together on Independence Day to celebrate patriotism and the independent spirit in our stunning mountain town. There are fireworks and festivities all over town. Please remember to be respectful of others as Wyoming, and much of the country, is reopening from travel restrictions due to the COVID-pandemic. Health authorities are asking that people still wear a mask in crowded spaces.
We are breaking down all the festivities for the fourth:
Fourth of July Event Schedule from Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce
10 am: Fourth of July Parade
8 pm: Jackson Hole Rodeo
10 pm: Fireworks at JHMR
10 pm: Fireworks at Snow King Mountain
10 pm: Fireworks at Teton Village
Jackson Hole Fourth of July Parade | 10 am | Downtown Jackson
An annual tradition that celebrates small town culture, ranching history, independence and community.
Starts at The Jackson Hole fairgrounds, proceeds down Glenwood Ave., passes near Town Square on Broadway Ave., then returns to the fairgrounds via S. Willow St. Please keep social distancing in mind as you find your spot to watch the parade.
Intricately-decorated floats, riders on horseback, bike, and rollerskaters, dancers and performers, and much more make this event festive and celebratory. To add to the fun, judges award the top three floats highly-coveted prizes at the end of the event.
This year marks a special parade in history, as Teton County turns 100 years old and the Jackson Hole Chamber turns 75. Commemorative floats honoring these milestones will lead the 2021 parade!
Jackson Hole Rodeo | 8 pm | JH Fairgrounds
Rodeo has been a part of Jackson’s cowboy culture for over 100 years, and the Fourth of July rodeo is a special tradition you don’t want to miss. Tickets available here.
Fourth of July Fireworks | 10 pm | Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Stilson, Snow King Mountain
Watch spectacular fireworks displays from three separate locations: a Town of Jackson display sponsored by Teton Board of Realtors, a Teton Village Association – sponsored show at Stilson Transit Center, or a second presentation at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in the Village.
We hope you have a fun and safe Independence Day!
