The summer is heating up and so are the outdoor music events! You better rest up on Monday nights because every other day of the week you will not want to miss the live outdoor music in the North Lake Tahoe area.

Start your week off with music in the Village at Squaw Valley with Bluesdays Tuesdays featuring acclaimed blues musicians Or, head over to Gray’s Crossing in Truckee to PJ’s Live Music Series. On Wednesday it’s Music in the Park, one of Truckee’s most treasured summer events. Surrounded by trees and adjacent to the Truckee River, an elevated terraced amphitheater lawn looks down at the stage hosting a favorite local band. Truckee keeps the fun going mid-week as Truckee Thursdays features two artists on two stages. Them, TGIF!! Time for music on the beach at Kings Beach. Sink your feet into the sand with a great band in front of you and the summer sunset over Lake Tahoe in the distance. Cool it off with ice cold Sierra Nevada Summer Ale at the beer garden. On Saturday, make your way up to the Village at Northstar for live music on the main stage overlooking the roller skating rink. Sit back and relax around the fire pits with cocktails (or s’mores) from the cabana bar or strap on your skates and take a spin to the beats. Then it is Sunday and time, my persnoal favorite- the Concert Series at Commons Beach in Tahoe City. Get there early for a good spot on the lawn and get ready for a family friendly dance party! With Lake Tahoe as a backdrop, a play structure for the kids and food and beer tents, there is no better way to spend a Sunday evening.

The best part? It’s all FREE! That’s 83 bands playing live for you throughout the summer. Bring a blanket or a low-back chair and set up with family, friends, or a fun date.
