  • PLEASE plan ahead and book refundable accommodations EARLY. We recommend making a booking as soon as you submit your application.
  • The Art Association does not provide accommodation options or discounts for exhibitors.
  • Exhibiting artists are responsible for making their own accommodation bookings.
  • AFJH does not provide parking for trailers. If you have a trailer, be sure your accommodation will permit you to park your trailer on-site. If your accommodation does not permit on-site trailer parking, you are responsible for making other arrangements for your trailer.
  • Parking in a nearby parking garage is available Thursday through Sunday for participating artists who have standard passenger vehicles. The parking garage cannot accommodate tall, oversized vehicles, RVs, or trailers.
  • Jackson, Wyoming is a highly sought-after tourist destination due to its proximity to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park, in addition to the many exciting tourism opportunities offered in town. For this reason, the summer season is extremely busy, meaning accommodation and parking opportunities are limited and book early.
  • We will give notice of acceptance and/or waitlist in late Spring. By this time, many of the affordable accommodation options will be booked! Refunds will not be granted on the basis of an exhibitor being unable to secure accommodation. We therefore encourage applicants to book refundable accommodation when they submit their application.
