Rendezvous Festival Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole Music Festivals come in all shapes and sizes. From the summertime's 60-year-old Grand Teton Music Festival featuring the country's top classical musicians to winter's popular Rendezvous Music Fest with exciting national headliners, there's something for everyone.

Below is our roundup of the best of the fests.

Grand Teton Music Festival

Grand Teton Music Festival

The Wall Street Journal has named Grand Teton Music Festival "one of the best places to hear classical music in the summer."

As far as Jackson Hole Music Festivals go, this is the granddaddy. The Grand Teton Music Festival presents world-renowned classical musicians, soloists and orchestras as a part of its seven-week summer concert series. Performances take place in Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village.*

During the summer of 2021, the festival will run from July 2nd through August 21st. If you're out here for the Fourth of July, you're in for a treat as GTMF's annual "Patriotic Pops" will be performed in the Festival Tent at the Center for the Arts' park.

*Due to ongoing Covid-19 concerns, the first 6 weeks of the GTMF will be held outdoors at the Center for the Arts, then move to its home at Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village for smaller audiences. For the full schedule, visit gtmf.org.

Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival

Not all Jackson Hole Music Festivals take place in the town of Jackson. There are three that are presented on the "other side of the Pass," as we locals like to say.

Since 1987, the Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival has been a gathering for bluegrass lovers in a beautiful mountain setting at Grand Targhee Mountain Resort in Alta, Wyo., just over the Teton Pass from Jackson Hole.

Targhee Bluegrass is the oldest of bluegrass festivals held in the Northern Rockies, combining great bluegrass with the ultimate mountain lifestyle. Grand Targhee Resort’s Bluegrass Festival has been a mainstay for bluegrass aficionados for more than two generations with stage appearances by national and regional artists and performers during that span that all bluegrass festivals envy.

*Unfortunately, the 2021 festival has been canceled, due to Covid-19 concerns.

Targhee Fest

Targhee Fest is also held at Grand Targhee and features a dozen bands both regional and national. *The 16th Annual Targhee Fest has unfortunately been canceled for 2021 due to Covid-19 concerns.

Music on Main

Music on Main is a favorite weekly summer outdoor concert series for residents of both Teton County, Wyoming and Idaho. Held on Thursday nights, Music on Main is a free all-ages concert series that brings a diverse lineup to Victor City Park in Victor, Idaho, less than a half-hour drive from Jackson Hole.

The music lineups continue the tradition of bringing highly talented musicians of diverse genres to Teton Valley. Music on Main has hosted some of the nation’s best bands from James McMurtry, to the Young Dubliners, to MarchFourth Marching Band, Reckless Kelly, the Motet, and more. Concert-goers bring blankets and chairs to enjoy the music under starry skies. In 2021, the series will run from June 17th through August 12th. Performance times are 6 to 10 p.m. Find out more here.
