EcoFair 2020 HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
In response to increasing public health concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus and recent event cancellations and closures within the Jackson Hole community and beyond, we have fielded numerous inquiries regarding Energy Conservation Works’ plans for EcoFair, scheduled for May 9, 2020.
We have determined that postponing EcoFair 2020 is in the best interest of our community, the event, and its sponsors. This decision aligns with current guidance from health and safety professionals in our community regarding large events, and is influenced by the uncertain conditions we will face in the coming weeks and months. We are considering several options for rescheduling and will seek community input in the coming weeks.
Please know that it is our intent to host a fun & meaningful event for the Jackson Hole community in a manner and time frame that is safe and responsible. At its core, EcoFair celebrates the sustainability and health of our community – we look forward to the event doing just that, at a time when the community, our partners, and public health recommendations allow.
We will continue to accept applications, and approved applicants will be invited to provide input regarding the rescheduling of the event. You can still access the application HERE. There will be no registration fees will be assessed until an alternative date has been selected and event planning is moving forward.
Check back here for updates regarding plans for EcoFair 2020. Stay safe and be well.
