New Year's Eve Live Music & Parties
Check back here for updates on New Year's Eve Live Music & Parties in Jackson Hole! Many events may be postponed, canceled, or moved to a virtual program. As parties and performers are announced, we will be adding them here. Here are a few of the most exciting events taking place to bid adieu to this year.
- Located directly on Town Square, the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar is considered a local "institution." Saddle-up to the bar and enjoy live music and a hooting and hollering good time with live music this New Years Eve with the Walker Williams Band. Playing country, the Walker Williams Band caters to those who like to dance and will get the crowd up and out of their seats. Tickets are on sale now.
