It’s that time of year! Thursday nights in Historic Downtown Truckee are full of fun for the whole family. June 8 – August 17, 5:00 –8:30 PM.
Celebrating its 10th year, Truckee Thursdays is a feel-good event that beckons the community to enjoy some exuberant downtown summertime energy. Offering a stage with live music, food court with an eclectic selection of eats, children’s activities, and a wide variety of artisan vendors, it’s no wonder this lively weekly event is on both locals’ and visitors’ must-do list. In addition, attendees will find sidewalk sales and other activities hosted by downtown merchants, offering the opportunity to reacquaint with all Historic Downtown Truckee has to offer year round! Each week also showcases a different nonprofit organization, providing the opportunity to highlight their services.
Voted Best Summer Event seven years in a row, Truckee Thursdays has become the must attend event of the summer! Back by popular demand – the Town of Truckee has approved the town-wide FREE shuttle. “We have a great new layout ready to roll out for our ten-year anniversary.” said Missy Konig, the new event manger, “People of all ages will have access to the live music and stage area. Additionally, persons 21 and over can now enjoy beer and wine in the food court area. We are excited to celebrate a monumental anniversary with the community!”
Truckee Thursdays is pleased to have the Tahoe Truckee Airport District back as an Event Partner, a great match in keeping with the community-oriented goals of both organizations. Truckee Thursdays is excited to welcome numerous new vendors to the event this year, along with many returning artists.
With free parking starting at 5 p.m. every Thursday this summer, folks stroll through the Historic Downtown District, popping into unique shops, sampling food
and wine in the exceptional bars and restaurants, listening to live music and catching up with friends and neighbors.
