Join us at Elkfest 2023 for the world’s largest annual auction of elk antlers, benefiting Scouting programs in western Wyoming and the National Elk Refuge.

Saturday, May 20, 2023
Jackson Town Square
7:00 am until 12:00 pm
Auction starts at 10:00 am

Locals and visitors from near and far converge on the Town of Jackson Town Square to enjoy this spectacular event and to participate in the purchase of antler lots and specialty items. All antlers sold at the auction are naturally shed on the National Elk Refuge.

Proceeds from the auction help fund Scouting programs for boys and girls in Teton County and surrounding counties and help fund National Elk Refuge initiatives. A total of 25% of the auction proceeds are directed to Scouting, with the balance directed to the National Elk Refuge.
