Sun Valley Wellness Festival

May 24 - 29



Sun Valley Wellness Festival – Could a Similar Festival Be Slated For Jackson Hole?

At more than one of the Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board meetings, volunteer members have discussed the possibility of supporting a wellness festival in Jackson Hole. Preliminary ideas place the timing of a possible festival during the autumn months, but steps have yet to be taken that will concrete the idea, although interest is growing.

Our neighboring mountain community to the west, Sun Valley Idaho, is hosting its 15th Annual Wellness Festival this weekend. The event is a large tourism attraction and may serve as a blueprint to further ideas about how our community could move forward with a related festival. If you haven’t noticed, wellness, both mental and physical, is a driving force of why many of us live in Jackson Hole. With that in mind, it seems natural that a similar event could be well received in the Tetons. (Just drive by a yoga studio and see how packed it is..)
