Ketchum has more than a few cultural surprises up its fleece-lined sleeves. A high-caliber, sophisticated gallery scene, annual writer’s conference, wine auction, top-notch symphony and weekly outdoor summer ice show featuring Olympic medalists are just a few. Be sure to visit our neighbor, the Sun Valley Museum of History, to explore Ketchum’s railroad, sheep herding and ski area past. It’s also where you can read some of Ernest Hemingway’s hand-penned letters.
Don’t miss the largest privately funded free-admission symphony in America, which is celebrating its 31st season. Performed at the Sun Valley Pavillon, sit inside or bring your picnic basket and sit on the lawn.
