February 27th – March 8th
It is time for the 33rd annual SnowFest! in North Lake Tahoe. This will be the ultimate snow dance for the region. Come snow or no snow, the 10 days following the opening ceremonies at Squaw Valley which kick off this Friday, February 27th are sure to bring excitement! With over 60 events in between Truckee and Tahoe there is something for everyone, even your dog.
Start the week off with a night filled with fun, fireworks and a torch light parade at Squaw Valley. Rise and shine on Saturday morning for the North Tahoe firefighters pancake breakfast at 7:00 am. Finish up just in time for the parade in downtown Tahoe City. From there, jump in the fun for the polar bear swim. It’s always fun to watch and for the very brave, also fun to participate and jump in Lake Tahoe! Throughout the week you can find excitement everywhere with bar olympics, ice carving, the dog Ididarun, a fashion show, and so much more.

My favorite event this year is the LUNAFest Film, Food and Wine put on as a fundraiser for the local Girls on the Run Sierras, an elementary and middle school program that helps young girls through involvement in running and self image lessons. LUNAFest is a whole night filled with good people, silent auction, food, wine, music and finished off with screenings of award-winning short films by female filmmakers. Buy your tickets early and be prepared to be impressed by these powerful films.
