Jackson Hole Centennial

Jackson Hole Centennial

Yes, the year of 2014 is the year of the Jackson Hole Centennial. The town of Jackson, Wyoming, was incorporated in 1914 – on September 21 to be precise – and we’re just three short weeks away from that date. And when you think about it – it wasn’t all that long ago, and to see images of Jackson then, compared to what it is now – wow – what a hundred years can do to ‘progress’.

 

So what do the locals do to celebrate the Jackson Hole Centennial? Well- there have been events all summer for visitors and locals alike. There was a huge Centennial Community Picnic at Miller Park, the 4th. of July Parade had a special flavor especially for the Jackson Hole Centennial, and coming up, on September 19th. Come along and help the Teton Raptor Center, the Jackson Hole Land Trust, and the Jackson Hole Historical Society have a ‘BARN-TASTIC’ evening at the Center for the Arts to celebrate the iconic ¬†Mosely/Hardeman Barn. There will be live music with barn dancing, a film (see promo at https://vimeo.com/78426914) a discussion and wildlife art exhibits. There will also be a ‘Treasure Hidden in Plain Sight’ event.

For those into something more peaceful than barn dancing, there will be a quilting demonstration on September 20th. from 10am Р2pm at the historic Miller House in the National Elk Refuge.  Also on September 20th, the Jackson Hole Centennial will be celebrated with the Centennial Gala Рthat will be at 6pm.

As reported in my most recent blog post, one of the bog deals of the celebration will be the Lynyrd Skynrd concert happening this evening (August 31st.) at SnowKing Ball Park.
