Shootout in Jackson Square

How long does the shootout in Jackson Square last? Are there buildings, restaurants, or landmarks that we should sit by for a better viewing?

Also, are there rodeos and covered wagon cookouts that are better than others?

We are hitting the GTNP during the day, but I am looking for 3 nights worth of evening activities. We are two adults and a 4 year old.

Thanks in advance!

The shootout lasts about 45 minutes. Best viewing is from the wood sidewalk on the east side of Centre St, since it's elevated a few feet above street level. Note that the firearms are pretty loud, so you might want to warn your youngster.

There's only one rodeo in Jackson, Tues and Thurs evenings during the summer:

Covered wagon cookouts:

Bar J (great western music show 15 minutes from Jackson and a pretty good barbecue meal)

Bar T5 in Jackson (ride a covered wagon to the dinner location and western music)

Dornans 12 miles north of Jackson in Moose (outdoor chuckwagon serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week during the summer. Sit at picnic tables near the Snake River with the Tetons in the background, or around a fire in the tepee)

Grand Teton Covered Wagon about an hour's drive north of Jackson (covered wagon ride followed by dinner)

Great information, thanks. But, a clarification on the duration of the shootout in the town square. I read elsewhere that the duration was only about 10 min. Which is correct, or is there more to the shootout?
