Summer begins in Tahoe City with the annual Tahoe City Solstice Festival set for June 18 to 21, 2015.

The festival includes several signature events that define our mountain culture. Each event touts Tahoe City’s distinct qualities and character: adventure sports, artisan food and wine, acclaimed musicians and artists, and celebrated local shops, restaurants, and galleries.

Whether you’re an athlete, wine connoisseur, art and music lover, or classic car aficionado, there’s sure to be an event to interest you. 

The Sun by Cathy McClelland, North Lake Tahoe artist, brilliantly captures the essence of summer at Lake Tahoe.
