Truckee is a lively and historic outdoor destination up in the Sierra Nevadas. A relatively recent boom in popularity has caused the town to really bring in visitors from all over, especially for the winter activities. It’s no wonder why, of course, Truckee and the surrounding area offer some of the best winter sports, hiking, snowmobiling, and so much more. The summer is just as much fun, of course, as the lakes and streams provide plenty of great kayaking and fishing opportunities for intrepid outdoorsmen.
Not to be outdone by its surroundings, Downtown Truckee has continued to grow and change with the times, becoming a multicultural hub with a variety of fine dining, shopping, and plenty of events to really bring out the spirit of the holidays that happen year-round. When you decide to make a holiday visit you’ll always be in for a treat in our Truckee CA houses for rent!

The Holidays in Truckee
Truckee is a vibrant town with a love for celebrating holidays of all kinds, making it a great vacation spot if you’re planning on getting into the seasonal spirit. Downtown Truckee especially loved decorating itself up for the holidays, and it’s the hub where you can expect most of the more popular events to be hosted. Here are some examples of holiday events, some of which run annually.
4th of July Parade and Fireworks
Celebrate the spirit of America with the people of Truckee if you’re visiting during the Summer for that perfect 4th of July getaway. It’s a perfect place to have an outdoor BBQ with your friends and family while the weather’s nice and warm, but don’t forget to see the fireworks and parade to really complete the experience. Traditionally, the parade runs from the late morning into the early afternoon, and when the sun goes down, you’ll see an impressive fireworks display over Donner Lake.
Halloweekend at Homewood
Homewood Mountain Resort hosts a weekend spanning event the weekend before Halloween weekend, featuring a massive variety of spooky events that the whole family will enjoy. The trick-or-treat village at South Base features face painting, pumpkin decorating, and a variety of surprises to be discovered from local vendors. They also decorate the chairlift ride-up so that you see haunted scenes all the way up, and the only way back down is to ride it the other way. Though it’s fun for the whole family, they recommend easily frightened children avoid the chairlift ride at your discretion.
Annual Lighting of the Christmas Tree in Downtown Truckee
Winter is a particular favorite time of year for Truckee. It’s a choice ski destination, and the first snow usually signals that the busy season is on its way. This boosts spirits all around, as businesses get boosted revenue from the influx of people, and those with a love for the great outdoors in winter get to put on their snow gear and hit the trails and slopes. What better way to really ring it all in than by lighting up the tree when the snow is coming down? Expect a lively time with plenty of fun to be had, and the children can even come by to meet Santa and give him their Christmas lists.
