Looking for something to do this holiday weekend?
From kayaking and paddleboarding to music and brews, there’s plenty going on in North Lake Tahoe this Labor Day. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite Labor Day events in North Lake Tahoe. Check out our 10 favorite events, things to do, and happenings below.
Relax on the Beach
This is a no-brainer. September is a gorgeous time to visit Lake Tahoe, and the Labor Day weather can’t be beat. Warm days, clear, glassy water, and gorgeous views will make you wonder why you’d ever want to leave. We don’t blame you–soak up some rays with that summer reading you haven’t quite finished, or watch the kids play in the clear calm waters of Lake Tahoe.
Kayak or Paddleboard
The Tahoe Adventure Company is located just next door to The Franciscan. Kayak and paddleboard rentals are available, and offer a great way to experience the tranquility of Lake Tahoe from the water. Looking for something a bit more involved? Book a sunset or sightseeing tour with The Tahoe Adventure Company or Tahoe City Kayak. Their knowledgeable guides will be able to answer any and all of your Tahoe questions, and the views will leave you speechless.
Enjoy Live Music
There are tons of opportunities to watch live local bands in Tahoe every weekend, and Labor Day is no different. Looking for a unique experience? Catch free concerts on the lake in Kings Beach and in Tahoe City this weekend! Both of these concerts offer food and beverage concessions, and of course, stunning vistas.
Yoga on the Lake
You can do yoga anywhere–but have you ever done it on Lake Tahoe? Check out Well Being Massage’s schedule for their Paddleboard Yoga classes, held every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. These classes are great for all abilities–whether you are a seasoned paddleboarder and yogi, or new to either practice. You’ll enjoy the healing powers of Lake Tahoe’s clear water as an instructor leads you through poses designed to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit.
Would it really be Labor Day Weekend without beer? Head over to Squaw Valley for Foam Fest–with live music, beer tastings from craft breweries, and mountain sunshine. All proceeds go toward Achieve Tahoe, a one-to-one adaptive sports program serving individuals with disabilities (physical, sensory, intellectual) of all ages. The nonprofit also has the honor of serving disabled veterans.
Alpen Wine Fest
Is wine more your thing? On Sunday, September 2, head over to Squaw Valley for wine tastings, live music, and a silent auction benefiting Can Do MS, a non-profit foundation that delivers health and wellness education programs to help families living with MS thrive.
Trail Ale Celebration
Did you enjoy the Tahoe Rim Trail this summer? Stop by Alibi Aleworks in Incline Village to say thanks to the crew who maintained the trails, and drink some ice cold Rim Trail Ale and be entered into raffles to win prizes. This great event helps to benefit the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, which keeps up the 165-mile trail that circumvents Big Blue.
Gar Woods’ Lake Tahoe Fireworks Spectacular on September 2nd will close out the end of summer in style. Grab yourself one of their signature Wet Woody’s and head out to their pier to watch fireworks on the lake.
Keep Tahoe Clean!
We know that you are going to do your part when you visit to keep Tahoe clean–that means pack it in, pack it out, don’t leave food outside, and dispose of trash in proper receptacles. However, it is the reality that the beaches and recreation areas in Tahoe do see increased litter over holiday weekends. Please consider heading to Commons Beach in Tahoe City on Monday, September 3rd, to do your part in keeping the Jewel of the Sierras as pristine as she was before Labor day. Learn more here.
We have a busy holiday weekend ahead, but we still do have some space available. Book your lodging today for an unforgettable weekend.
