Deloney Avenue and tickets to performances can be purchased online in advance of showings.
Enjoy Seasonal Stargazing Fun
Year-round, visitors to Jackson Hole can take advantage of the destination’s low-light pollution areas which offer up unsurpassed views of the stars and cosmos. The city hosts free stargazing events that are open to the public on Thursdays and hosted at the northwest corner of the Stilson parking lot off Highway 390 and 22. This is a great place to come and gather with family and friends alongside astronomy educators when the sun goes down and the stars come out.

The event is hosted by the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce and local businesses provide the goodies for trick-or-treating fun. The costume contest kicks off at 4:00 pm sharp so be sure to be there in your holiday best if you’re looking to go home with the prize. This is an annual event that’s beloved by locals and visitors alike and one you won’t want to leave off your itinerary in 2023.
Hike Through the National Parks
While the October festivities in Jackson Hole are certainly worth enjoying, Halloween is also a great time of year to get in a last hike through the nearby national parks before the snow begins to fall for the season. A visit this way puts you well within reach of both Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. Both destinations offer up incredible wildlife viewing, nature photography options, and trails that are sure to inspire no matter what your skill level may be. There are still tours that can be booked through the parks this time of year as well if you prefer a more guided option to exploring nature. Either way, it’s a wonderful and refreshing time to make the most of the great outdoors alongside family and friends.
