If you’re looking for the luck of the Irish, we can’t guarantee you’ll find it around Lake Tahoe on St. Patrick’s Day, but we’re sure you’ll find delicious Irish fare and traditional drinks to whet your whistle after a day of spring skiing!
If corned beef and cabbage, and a hearty pint is what you desire:
St. Patrick’s Day Corned Beef & Irish Special at River Ranch: Head on down to the River Ranch from 12PM-8PM, and take a seat on the deck under such sunny skies, with traditional Irish cuisine and drink specials.
St. Patrick’s Day Celebration at Homewood & West Shore Inn: This is a great combo to quench your hunger for skiing and St. Patty’s Day food and drink! Start your day at Homewood at 9AM, where they offer their signature ”I Shamrock Homewood” t-shirts. Once you’re off the slopes, cross the street for live music, as well as a classic corned beef and cabbage feast (until 11PM).
St. Patrick’s Day Celebration at Auld Dubliner: Squaw Valley’s authentic Irish pub (literally imported from Dublin, Ireland) is definitely the place to be and be seen on St. Patty’s Day! If you’re looking for the best Shephard’s Pie or Traditional Beef Stew and a Guiness on the side, then make your way here. We suggest a Black and Tan.
If you feel like hunting for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow:
St. Patrick’s Day Celebration at Squaw Valley: Ski or snowboard with Squaw’s lucky leprechaun! Afterwards hit up the KT sundeck for an Irish pint while listening to the tunes of Leche De Tigre, live!

This adults-only annual walking tour of Historic Truckee is a dynamic, exciting and dark way to walk the steps of haunted Truckee tales.

Want to attend but you’ve got kids? Don’t worry. Here’s a solution!
Did you know that Oktoberfest is the largest and most famous event in Germany? It’s a 16-day festival celebrating beer, and has been a staple in Bavarian culture since 1810.
Why not raise a stein in traditional fashion and celebrate at Squaw Valley’s Oktoberfest tomorrow from 2-6pm? Unlike the events held in Munich and Bavaria, you won’t eat brats and kraut under a colorful tent, but in the open air of Lake Tahoe. The air is crisp with fall, the leaves are turning color, your stein is full of brew, and you’ll be entertained by traditional Bavarian Music and Folk Dancers.
Don’t forget the Oktoberfest Games! There’s fun for the whole family.
- Stein Holding competition
- Keg-Rolling race
- Bratwurst Toss
- Yodeling Contest (new this year!)
All entertainment at the event is free. Your first glass of beer is $10, which also includes a 1/2-liter commemorative festival stein. Additional beers are available for $5 /each.
Proceeds benefit the Tahoe Truckee Lacrosse Foundation.
This event is a key part of Lake Tahoe maritime preservation and education, and also your chance to view over 80 classic boats on display, in running for top prize. In addition to boat viewing, your 1-day or 2-day ticket access to the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance offers the opportunity for live music, food and beverage purchase, full-color souvenir and vendor booths worth browsing!
August 10 and 11: 10am to 4:30pm
Awards ceremony at 6pm on Friday
