Event Funding

Locally supported events and programs


The JHTTB allocates public funding to local events to promote, market, and produce events taking place in fall, winter, and spring.

Thanks to the money collected from the lodging tax, many community character events have been partially funded. This year, the JHTTB allocated $2 million to local events!

Community events (sponsorship up to $5,000)

Events must contribute to the distinctive character and vibrancy of our community and enhance the visitor experience. Examples include the Touch-A-Truck, Pumpkins on Fire, and Teton County Model United Nations.

Large events (sponsorship from $5,000 to $75,000)

These events are intended to drive visitation to Jackson and generate overnight stays. These events are measured based on visitor attendance and estimated lodging revenue. Examples include the Jackson Hole Marathon, Stage Stop Pedigree Dog Sled Race, World Championship Hill Climb, and Teton Powwow.

Signature events (sponsorship of $75,000+)

These events are intended to showcase Jackson as an event destination and drive visitation and overnight stays. In addition, these events meet the JHTTB’s mission and goals and showcase responsible event tourism on a global scale. Examples include the Jackson Hole Rendezvous Spring Festival.
