Professional Bull Riding - Jackson Hole

Monday, July 15, 2019


The applicant, Josh Timon with Outlaw Partners LLC, requests permission for overnight camping at the fairgrounds, amplified sound during a Professional Bull Riders (event), and a malt beverage permit during the event being held at the Teton County Rodeo Grounds.  The event is scheduled for Monday, July 15 and Tuesday, July 16, 2019 and has been approved by the TC Fair Board. 

This event would include amplified sound (pre-recorded music and announcers) during the event. The applicant has indicated that the event would conclude by 10:00pm on both nights.  

The applicant requests the following from the Town for the event:

  • Permission from Council for amplified sound associated with the event. 
  • An expo license which will be submitted for vendor sales.
  • A malt beverage permit for the sale of beer at the Rodeo Grounds from 3:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M., on Monday, July 15 and Tuesday, July 16, 2019.
  • Permission from Council for overnight RV camping for event participants arriving Sunday, July 14 and departing Wednesday, July 17, 2019.

This request for overnight camping begins on Sunday, July 14, 2019 and runs to Wednesday, July 17, 2019.  Camping would occur on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights.  Participants and family members will be camping in RV/living quarter type trailers. The Fair Board has approved this use.  The applicant has indicated that no more than 10 RV units would be camping overnight.

Section 10.04.220 of the Municipal Code prohibits overnight parking on any parking lot owned, operated, leased, or maintained by the town; and Section 9.52.050 prohibits sleeping in any public place unless permission is granted by the Town Council for special events.

This event was approved last year.  One significant change from last year’s request is that this year the applicant is requesting to host the event for two nights.  Last year the event was approved for one night.  

Last year this event did receive noise complaints from neighborhood residents.   The applicant has been made aware that this was a concern.   He has indicated that they would make the necessary efforts to reduce the noise complaints by lowering the volume of the amplified sound and repositioning the speakers.    The applicant indicated that they would work with the Police Department in an effort to monitor noise levels.  

The applicant has indicated that they will be sponsoring the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum again this year with a percentage of sales, proceeds from a 50/50 raffle as well as parking collections.  Last year the PBR contributed $18,000 to the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum.   The organizer has indicated that they are looking at additional local non-profits in addition to the JH Historical Society. 

The application has been submitted for review to all Town departments.
