South Lake Tahoe Event Guide - October 2019
A Look Forward at October Events!
It's October and we have many great events coming up this month. Fall is around the corner and the weather is starting to cool down. We've hand-picked some of our favorite events happening here on the South Shore this month just for you. Take a look below!
To celebrate 25 years of Bavarian-themed fun, Camp Richardson Historic Resort and Marina is adding new food and games to this year’s Oktoberfest on Oct. 5-6. New sausage varieties, Bavarian beef stew, Beacon beer and brat boil, and for dessert, delicious caramel apples are coming to the menu. There will also be chances to win a mountain bike and purchase 25th-anniversary merchandise including a commemorative glass stein from Germany and signature shirts. The fall festival, a favorite for visitors and locals, runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and entrance and parking for the event are free.
The Fall Fish Festival will take place at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center located on SR Highway 89, three miles north of the City of South Lake Tahoe. Hosted by the U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit in collaboration with Great Basin Institute, the festival is an opportunity to learn about the variety of fish species that live in Lake Tahoe and its tributaries including the federally threatened Lahontan cutthroat trout.
Black Ice Theatre Presents "The Pillowman"
When: 10/24, 25, 26, 27 and 31
Where: Lake Tahoe Community College
Winner of two Tony Awards and the Olivier Award for Best Play, Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman opens in a prison cell where a young writer is being questioned about the children’s tales he has written – grim tales which have inspired copycat killings in the streets outside. Two interrogators tease out the resemblance between real and fictional worlds while probing the personal responsibility of the writer. Story piles upon story as the evening progresses, and the tension mounts when parallel interviews taking place in the adjoining cell with the writer’s sister are revealed.
