Attend the Jackson Hole Veterans Day Event at Town Square

Each year on Veterans Day in Jackson Hole, locals and visitors alike gather at Town Square to take part in the annual Veterans Day event hosted by American Legion Post 43. Gathering at George Washington Memorial Park on November 11, attendees take time to honor those who have served in the U.S. military. It’s an event that happens no matter how snowy things might get, and the event includes a speech by the Mayor as well as hoisted flags and military members in uniform. There’s a monument in Town Square designed to honor veterans from the area making the experience even more meaningful for everyone involved. Afterward, participants can take time to explore Town Square and its many eateries and shops or snap photos underneath one of the four iconic elk antler arches that adorn the park. These archways are truly stunning and are updated with new antlers each season elk over at the National Elk Refuge shed their antlers seasonally.
