The vibrant Lake Tahoe community is more than just gorgeous scenery. It’s also a place where locals and visitors come together in celebration of the arts, food, fine libations, and more. The events compiled here are popular, and Lake Tahoe is bristling with families, couples, and groups elbowing to get a spot at each.
We encourage you to up-level your Lake Tahoe experience by attending one of these events aboard one of our luxury yachts. If you’ve never experienced fireworks, boat shows, golf tournaments, or live music aboard a Lake Tahoe yacht, you’re missing out. Intimate and stress-free, Tahoe Yacht Charters provides a luxury experience that can’t be matched on land.
4th of July
Fourth of July weekend is by far the busiest time in Lake Tahoe with fireworks shows, performances, parades, and other events popping off from South Tahoe to North Tahoe to Truckee. If you find yourself in Truckee on the 4th of July, head to Donner Lake and paddle out on the water for a firework’s display that takes place on West End Beach.
For the best fireworks experience in Tahoe, hop aboard our Tahoe Luxury Yacht and experience Independence Day from the water. We’ll take you and your party up close, where you’ll enjoy the magic and wonder without the crowds. The best 4th of July view in Tahoe is on our luxury yacht.
Celebrity Golf Tournament
Enjoy Lake Tahoe’s largest golf tournament, featuring various celebrities, from the deck of your own private chartered yacht. Tahoe’s American Century Championship Celebrity Golf Tournament takes place at Edgewood Golf Course on the East Shore every summer. Marcus Allen, Charles Barkley, and Stephan Curry are just a few well-known attendees who make their way to Tahoe and golf for charity. Leave the crowds behind - Tahoe Yacht Charters will anchor right off shore for your viewing pleasure.
Concerts on Commons Beach
Whether you’re on the South or North Shore of Lake Tahoe, enjoy Sunday summer concerts, featuring well known artists, like the California Honeydrops. Parking and finding a spot on the beach can be frustrating if not impossible. Watch the show from the Lake Tahoe shore on Tahoe Yacht Charter’s luxury 45-foot Formula Yacht. We’ll take you to Commons Beach in Tahoe City or Lakeview Commons Beach in South Lake.
Every summer The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival on Sand Harbor in Incline Village delights the eyes and ears of Truckee and Tahoe locals and visitors. Be entertained by Shakespeare’s plays in the audience in comfy chairs, on the sandy beach, or aboard a vessel. Tahoe Yacht Charter has the perfect luxury cruise package for an unforgettable evening of Shakespeare, the spectacular Tahoe sunset, and a private cultural experience.
Proclaimed as the most “acclaimed and prestigious wooden boat show in all of North America” the Concours D’Elegance brings vintage class back to Lake Tahoe. The boat show showcases meticulously preserved classic Woodies. This is more than just a boat show; the Concours D’Elegance also offers unique shops, a fully stocked bar, food, and a wine village.
