It’s Time To Get Your Mountain Summer Culture Fix!   Leave a comment

.

The 4th of July is soon upon us, which officially kicks off the summer season here at Lake Tahoe.

There is a lot to do and see in these brief, but glorious months, so best be marking your calendars to fit these cultural and/or summer fun events into your schedules.

Back again, as always, is the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor. A night out under the stars watching the finest from the bard of Avon is a local staple. Last year they expanded their repertoire to include the ballet Giselle, which was a wonderful addition to the theatrical menu. We sat next to out of town guests who had never been to our local favorite venue, and marveled at our picnic ‘spread’ of gastronomic  delights. If you’ve never done any events at Sand Harbor before, pack a gourmet picnic,  (although you can buy food and drink there as well) a low back chair, warm clothing, and yes, even some rain gear…just in case. A bottle of vino or two is permitted, but the events prefer you put it in something unbreakable. Broken glass, bare feet and sand is a really bad combination.

And don’t forget to pack a FLASHLIGHT! It’s hard navigating your way back to your car in the dark…just sayin’…

 This year’s production is A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The season starts on July 12th and runs through August. On Mondays are other theatrical productions including ‘Broadway on the Beach’, The Reno Chamber Orchestra and the ballet ‘Coppelia’, along with much more.

If you’re a boat aficionado, the 41st annual Concours d’ Elegance is August 9 & 10 at Sierra Boat Company in Carnelian Bay. Featuring vintage wooden boats from a bygone era, this event is a veritable museum of maritime vessels.

In nearby Reno, don’t forget ‘Artown’ (July- celebrating the local art scene) and ‘Hot August Nights’ (vintage cars, poodle skirts and that old time rock and roll…), along with top name entertainment from the likes of the Steve Miller Band, Steely Dan and Rascal Flatts to name but a few.
