Long summer days and brilliant blue waters are hallmarks of the beauty of the Tahoe Sierra. Summer also brings with it event and festival season in Tahoe from the free summer concerts (there are six), to food & wine extravaganzas, live music that seems to never end, mountain biking festivals to rodeo championships, air shows to paddlefests, there’s a nearly endless supply of summer fun awaiting.

Each season, Tahoe Weekly presents its Tahoe Music & Festivals guide and this summer’s guide is our largest to date spanning festivals and events from Tahoe to the Lost Sierra to Reno and Virginia City from June through early October. We also have the complete lineup for the free, outdoor summer concert series. This is one issue you’ll want to save the entire season.
