North Lake Tahoe’s Snowfest returns March 2 to 12 with its beloved local festival, celebrating 41 years of winter festivities! The family-friendly festivities kick off in full swing with fireworks, live music and an après fireworks party showcasing ski town nightlife! Snag a spot on the sidelines watching floats in the Snowfest Parade and then take the plunge at Gar Wood’s Annual Polar Bear Swim! Drink up after at Tahoe Tap Haus’ Brewfest and Block Party. Chill out with a fruity drink at the Sunnyside Luau after watching the dog races in the Dog Pull. 

Get in on the action with Milk Jug Curling and Black Out Bingo. Then head to Pete ‘N Peter’s for Bar Olympics! Top up your wine glass while watching chain ice sculptures come to life via chain saws at the Wine ‘N Ice Competition. Give it your best toss in the Cornhole Tournament and golf your way through nine holes in the Alaskan Open Snow Golf Tournament. Meet the ski patrol dogs keeping the slopes safe at Yappy Hour and go all out in the Dress Up Your Dog Contest!
