Summer season in Tahoe has come to mean festival time in the mountains. We’ve even come up with our own reference: culture al fresco. There are plenty of options but we’ve made it easy by highlighting our favorites activities for our private jet travelers.
Every year the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival presents a California-style version of the great playwright’s works. In its 40th year the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival runs July 13 through August 26 this summer. The venue, Sand Harbor State Park, is open air with Lake Tahoe as the backdrop. The pre-show begins at 5:00 pm and either pack a picnic or purchase gourmet fare at the event. Insider tip: Plan to attend during a full moon cycle. I don’t think we need to tell you why.
Music in the mountains: Is there anything better? Tahoe Music Festival delivers in spades with top-name performers like Blues Traveler, Colbie Caillat and Michael Bolton. Even better: The venue. Shows take place at the Village at Northstar with general and preferred seating. The schedule begins mid-July with performances running through August but act quickly; these sell out fast.
The village at Squaw Valley transforms itself July 14 and 15 with art, wine and music. Artists line the streets outside Village shops while performers take to two stages. Add in wine tasting and your private jet Tahoe vacation is complete. Entrance to the festival is free and takes place from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm both days. Fifteen wineries provide tastings for $25.00 a person from 2:00 pm until 5:00 pm both days. Like most perfect trios, art, wine and music promise to inspire you.
You flew in on a beautiful charter private jet, so why not continue to celebrate all things that fly at this Fourth of July holiday festival in Truckee. View aircraft on the ground and in the sky, and talk with original Tuskegee Airmen. Take a ride in a P-51 and watch skydivers free fall in formation. The Festival is free and takes place at the Truckee Tahoe Airport July 7 from 7:00 am until 4:00 pm. Plan to spend the entire day; food and drinks are available onsite with $1 bike valet parking right up front.
Art and artist education combine for the 2012 Lake Tahoe SummerFest Arts festival taking place August 2 through August 12. Celebrate culture each day from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm with workshops, such as Gene Constanza’s outdoor demonstration on his technique for creating early California impressionist pieces and Albert Handell’s lecture on pastels. View other artist work and make sure to swing through Diamond Peak Lodge to refuel with good eats and drinks.
If beer and bluegrass is your thing, then plan to visit the Village at Northstar July 14. Sweetwater String Band and The Grant Farm take the stage while more than 25 craft brewers supply the suds. The festival lasts from 3:00 pm until 7:00 pm and offers family-friendly activities too.
