There will be no physical EcoFair in 2021, but the EcoSpirit is alive.
We have determined that it is in the best interest of both the Jackson Hole community and EcoFair itself to once again skip the traditional in-person celebration usually hosted by Energy Conservation Works on the 2nd Saturday in May. Although there will be no physical EcoFair in 2021, we will be supporting and sustaining the spirit of EcoFair in several ways this season:
- Education and engagement on key sustainability topics through our multi-part EcoTalks series (more info coming soon!)
- Hands-on service and stewardship by continued partnership with and support of the annual town clean-up
- Action through a community sustainability challenge
- Recognition and celebration of leadership through the presentation of the 2021 ATLAS (Andy Tyson Leadership Award in Sustainability)
The spirit of EcoFair is alive and well in Jackson Hole! We deeply appreciate the support of all of EcoFair’s past, current, and future sponsors, partners, and participants, and all those who value simple and sustainable living in the Tetons.

We’re hoping for…

Booths will be located in and near the large tents, and near the eco-friendly vehicle displays
Energy Efficiency and Green Power
EcoFair 2019’s energy conservation and efficiency displays inspired and taught fairgoers about power options available in our area.
In 2020, plan on a visit with Energy Conservation Works and Lower Valley Energy booth to learn about switching to LOCAL GREEN POWER at your home or business, and pick up your Sustainability Kit, including LED lightbulbs and more! Make sure to drop off your old bulbs + small e-waste items with event sponsor Integrated Solid Waste & Recycling!
