Events for Memorial Day in Lake Tahoe
As difficult as it is to believe, summer is peeking hard around the corner; Memorial Day Weekend is generally the jumping off point for our favorite season! While many parts of the country are already starting to get too hot for comfort, in North Lake Tahoe the season brings perfect temperatures for outdoor activities, and on Memorial Day, it’s the perfect time to honor those brave heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country! Here’s a guide to some of the all-American events taking place over the long weekend; take part in all or pick and choose your favorite Memorial Day in Lake Tahoe events!
Take a Moment to Remember
It’s not necessary to attend a big event to commemorate the heroes for which this day is all about; it’s the small gestures that mean the most and saying a silent prayer or offering a snappy salute towards the American flag can do just that. Wake up early during your stay in Tahoe and head out to the porch that overlooks the beauty of our mountain town for a moment or two of coffee and contemplation. Our brave heroes died so you could enjoy many more moments like these, and a silent thanks would not be considered foolish.
The Little Big Bike Festival, May 24th through May 26th, Truckee Bike Park
The freedom of riding a bike on a cool spring day is one we all can enjoy, and this festival has events for men, women and children of all skill levels at the Truckee Bike Park! Featuring competitive jumping, jump jams, slalom races and so much more, even if you don’t ride a bike, watching the talented competitors show off their mad skills is worth the trip!

Donner Party Mountain Runners Picnic and Runs, Prosser Ranch Campground
We love the outdoors, and any time we can find something new to do outside, we jump right on it. The Donner Party Mountain Runners Picnic and Runs is a relatively new Memorial Day event that has been taking place for five years. Costing absolutely nothing and giving participants an opportunity to strut their stuff, enjoy food and drinks (you provide your own plates, cups, and silverware, preferably reusable) and simply enjoy another day in paradise! Registration is easy.
