As summer continues to offer some of the best of the season, we thought this would be a perfect time to share our favorite food and wine events that are still very much a part of the lifestyle that comes with living in and visiting Truckee/Lake Tahoe.
From the signature events of the season to weekly Taco Tuesdays, Truckee Thursdays, and Farmer’s Markets that are ripe for the pickin’, there’s always something delicious being served up within a short bike ride or scenic drive from our real estate office in Truckee, CA.
Some of the events listed below are happening on a weekly basis and don’t miss the four signature food and beverage events of the season listed below!
In the meantime, we always enjoy every opportunity to share ‘the good life’ that awaits you and yours … so come by our office at Elder Group Tahoe Real Estate or give us a call at any time.
Cheers to a super end to the summer, and then some!
