Free Shuttle

Parking can be tough with the popularity of this event, so a great idea is to take the free shuttle bus to the event and back!

Event Awards

In the 2016 Best of North Tahoe and Truckee this event won the following award:

  • Best Community Event or Festival - This is huge as there are so many different events in the Truckee and North Lake Tahoe area.

  • In prior years, it won Best Place to people watch - This is so true! It is fun just to wander the street and people watch. Locals that live in Truckee will definitely run into friends each week, and it is a great place to network with business acquaintances as well. For me, each time that I go, I just love to watch all the dogs and puppies as well. It is a Dog Friendly Event, and lots of people bring their leashed dogs and puppies to socialize them. (See my Truckee Dog Information page for all the details about owning a dog in Truckee!)
