The Top Can’t Miss Special Events in IV/CB This Summer

June 13, 2023 | Kayla Anderson

While there are plenty of things to do all summer long in this northeast corner of Tahoe, there are a few prominent events in Incline Village that are worth carving out time in your calendar for. Between drone shows, art hikes, theatre performances, and classical concerts with the nation’s top musicians, here are a few one-of-a-kind experiences to take part of this summer: 

July-September: Take in Tahoe’s classical music at its best with TOCCATA

Following its early summer Classy Classics concert series and “Soiree Musicale” fundraising events, TOCCATA Tahoe Symphony Orchestra is gearing up for its Red White and Tahoe Blue concert on July 2nd, an August concert series, and a 9/11 memorial concert. Visit https://toccatatahoe.org/ for an updated schedule. 

July 2-4: Take part in the Local Heroes 4th of July Celebration presented by the IVCBA

Our very own Incline Village Crystal Bay Business Association is organizing the 4th of July Celebration this year with pancake breakfasts, a BBQ, flag retirement ceremony, and more. Be sure to catch the parade that goes down the main street of Incline Village starting at 10am on Sunday, July 2nd and the July 4th SkyShow activities from 7pm-11pm at the Incline Village Ridgeline Ball Fields. http://ivcba.org/events/local-heroes/ 

June 30-August 20: See Little Shop of Horrors at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival

The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival has been around since 1972 and each year it has just gotten bigger and better. In 1979 a stage was built exclusively for the festival at Sand Harbor State Park, and hundreds of Shakespeare fans came to see the nine performances. Nowadays upwards of 33,000 attendees catch one (or a few) of the many productions held there, and the D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program reaches more than 8,500 children in the Tahoe basin. This year’s featured show is the musical comedy Little Shop of Horrors; to see a schedule of events or to buy tickets, visit https://laketahoeshakespeare.com/

July 9-August 17: Sway to the music with Classical Tahoe at UNR at Lake Tahoe

Every summer, the nation’s top classical musicians come together in Incline Village for a 16-concert series at the intimate outdoor pavilion located at UNR at Lake Tahoe. In this year’s four-week series, musicians from the MET Opera Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the San Francisco Symphony, and more will delight and entertain attendees by playing beautiful tunes that match the peaceful Tahoe setting.
