A HALL FOR THE COMMUNITY
With the recent improvements to Walk Festival Hall, the facility has become a hub for an array of vibrant community activity. In addition to being the permanent home to the Grand Teton Music Festival, Walk Hall frequently hosts the Alpinist and Banff Film Festivals, as well as Teton Gravity Research film premieres, Off Square Theatre Company productions, Jackson Hole High School’s year-end performances, and various conferences, large-scale meetings, and workshops for Jackson Hole area resorts and event planners.
A HISTORY OF WALK FESTIVAL HALL
After seven years of orchestral performances in Teton Village under a carnival tent and chamber music in the Mangy Moose Saloon, the Festival celebrated its growing national prominence by opening Walk Festival Hall in 1974 at the base of the ski slopes in Teton Village. Alex Morley, Paul McCollister and the Jackson Hole Ski Corporation generously donated the land on which the Hall is built. Architect Bob Corbett, acoustic engineer Christopher Jaffe, construction tycoon John Bancroft and Job Captain George Sutherland built Walk Festival Hall, achieving acclaim for its unrivaled acoustics. 2007 marked the grand re-opening of Walk Festival Hall following a 10-month, $4.85 million project to preserve its rich acoustics. The addition of interior and exterior soundproofing, as well as extensive functional and aesthetic improvements, ensures great performances in Walk Festival Hall for generations to come.
