Tahoe City is turning 150 years young on August 8, 2013! Can you believe it?
Tahoe City Day kicks off over a month-long celebration of multifaceted community-wide events, everything from pancake breakfasts and Bloody Mary brunches to paddle tours and speakeasy pub crawls. Lake Tahoe has drastically changed since Tahoe City was recorded and recognized by W. Taft on August 8, 1863 and the anniversary celebration will explore its history and progression.
