The Chamber of Commerce in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, announced the dates for the 2013 Fall Arts Festival, and that undoubtedly means the phones at area hotels are ringing off the hook. Reservations for lodging go fast for this popular event, which pairs Western art with the considerable charm of the small Wyoming city nestled in the Teton Mountains.

The Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival is about a lot more than paintings and sculpture. Local restaurants prepare special meals, jewelry designers show their wares, and interior designers showcase Western style during the 10-day event, held this year from September 5 through 15.
