Lake Tahoe Cultural Events: Tahoe Youth Ballet

Who ever said urban and rural life couldn’t intersect seamlessly? You can enjoy Lake Tahoe’s breathtaking great outdoors, tucker yourself out on the slopes all day, and still get your fill of a city-center cultural favorite: ballet.

There is a company of young dance students in the Lake Tahoe area who are devoted to bringing new life to the cultural fabric of the region. Tahoe Youth Ballet presents “Dancing Women, Then and Now” on March 9th and 10th at 7pm at Cal Neva Resort.  “Dancing Women, Then and Now” features Act II of Giselle and the premiere of Into the Trees. The gala opening night tickets ($55) include admission with preferred seating, a semi-formal post-show party and two raffle tickets.

Multi-Media Jazz Concert: “Jazz Reach”

Marcus Strickland

Due to the lack of arts and music programming in schools today, there are organizations throughout the United States that have devoted themselves to the education of young audiences in this medium.  One of these non-profit organizations, JazzReach,  ”has developed a unique and diverse repertoire of substantive, high quality live educational programs for young audiences that are especially tailored to elucidate the art form and complement a broad range of students’ everyday classroom curriculum.”  Their multi-media programs are highly interactive, entertaining, yet informative.

On February 3rd, both young and old will have the opportunity to enjoy a remarkable evening of jazz, sponsored by the Cal Neva Resort.  This immersive, globally themed main-stage program features performances of all new commissions by prominent, internationally recognized jazz composers hailing from countries as diverse as, West Africa (Lionel Loueke), Israel (Omer Avital), Cuba (Yosvany Terry), Puerto Rico (Miguel Zenon), India (Rudresh Mahanthappa) and the United States (Marcus Strickland).

35 local jazz musicians from Incline Village, North Lake Tahoe and Truckee have trained with these renowned musicians and will perform in the opening piece of the show.  The history of jazz will certainly come alive in the local Lake Tahoe community!

Foam Fest: Disabled Sports USA

“If I can do this, I can do anything.”

The motto of Disabled Sports USA Far West says it all. The birth of this organization dates back to 1967 when Jim Winthers brought together a group of Vietnam Veterans to support each other as they learned to cope with their disabilities. Surprisingly enough, these Veterans taught themselves and others how to ski. As a World War II Veteran of the 10th Mountain Division and Director of the Soda Springs Ski School, Winthers launched Disabled Sports USA.

Lake Tahoe is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, and that means all shapes, sizes and abilities. Disabled Sports is dedicated to the rehabilitation of disabled athletes, and believes that sports are a vital part of the process in which disabled individuals gain self-confidence, mobility and greater independence. They promote education, socialization and employment to the disabled.

Come support Disabled Sports at the 22nd Annual Foam Fest on October 15th from 7pm-10:30pm. The event features over 40 microbreweries, the culinary style of Award-Winning Chef Sean Conry of Longboard’s Bar & Grill, and live music by Marble Party. There is an opportunity to purchase tickets for the gourmet dinner and tasting, or simply general admission to the microbrew tasting. Last year’s dinner sold out, so be sure to get your tickets soon!

Visit Disabled Sports USA Far West for event details and ticket information.


Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance: Boating in Style

If you have never taken a ride in a wooden boat, you truly have not experienced Old World Tahoe. It is a taste of luxurious times when pleasure crafts were constructed of gorgeous mahogany and decadent leather interiors. No matter the power and gusto of the engine, they seemed to glide with ease across Lake Tahoe, and still do to this day.

Today when locals and tourists think of “woodies” we rarely envision the wooden boats of Garwoods, Chris Craft and Riva. We are familiar with Garwoods Restaurant and the famous “Wet Woody®”, Lake Tahoe’s rum version of the popular margarita. Nonetheless, both are valuable pieces of Lake Tahoe tradition and local culture.

Regardless if you’ve had the pleasure of riding on the Thunderbird, or not, the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance is your chance to view over 80 classic boats on display and in running for top prize. The Concours d’Elegance had meager beginnings in 1972 when a group of members from the Tahoe Yacht Club got together to share their passion for wooden boats. Today the event has grown into a key part of Lake Tahoe maritime preservation and education.

In addition to boat viewing, your 1-day or 2-day ticket access offers the opportunity for live music, food and beverage purchase, full-color souvenir and vendor booths worth browsing.
