Skies are expected to open up and the sun will shine this Memorial Day weekend as the Made in Tahoe Festival is celebrated at The Village at Squaw Valley.
The annual event that celebrates Tahoe’s artisans features live music and performances on three stages. There will be more than 100 vendors at the Saturday and Sunday gathering. Everything will be made in or inspired by the Lake Tahoe Basin.
As locals know, the weather can always change and this week there has been snow, hail, rain and cloudy and sunny weather. But it should be nice beginning Saturday, although there could be a stray thunder shower. Sunday will be mostly sunny, according to AccuWeather. Temperatures on both days will approach 70 degrees.
“Made in Tahoe is a great place to shop for one-of-a-kind gifts and items to make anyone feel like a Tahoe local,” said Caroline Ross, the executive director of the Squaw Village Neighbourhood Company.
The event’s first Community Farm to Table Dinner will be held at the KT Sun Deck on Saturday. There will be a five-course, family-style dinner featuring local food prepared by local chefs. Proceeds benefit the Squaw Valley Institute. Reservations are required. LINK
Made in Tahoe has an array of amazing local food and beverage offerings. It will be showcasing Starkey’s, MNT Roots, The Souper Wagon, Picnic, Friar on the Mountain, FOLK Brewing Co, Tahoe Truckee Jerky and more. Also available – Fifty Fifty Brewing Co, Tahoe Mountain Brewing Co, Truckee River Winery, Tahoe Blue Vodka and Tahoe Teas.
Well-behaved dogs on leashes are always welcome at The Village.
The music gets started at 11 a.m. Saturday on the Plaza Stage with one of Tahoe’s most renowned bands, Peter Joseph Burtt & The King Tide, which plays world-soul blues.
Squaw Valley is still open for skiing and riding through Monday, May 30, with great deals on lift tickets. Passholders can bring friends for just $19 and are offering $19 lift tickets to passholders of other resorts. Check out the LINK for complete information.
