History of the Festival

The Grand Teton Music Festival began in 1962. Concerts in the early years took place in a canvas tent at the base of Rendezvous Mountain. Through the years the Festival has grown into one of the nation’s finest, and now takes place in acoustically-acclaimed Walk Festival Hall. Read more about Walk Festival Hall.
