Give up the funk to Squaw Valley, because it’s the funkiest, jazziest place in California during the Brews, Jazz and Funk Fest. This weekend-long event brings Grammy Award-winning musicians and others to the Village at Squaw Valley, where they share their talent with the community. There are two stages set up in the village, so you’ll be able to hear the music wherever you are. While you shake your hips and tap your feet to the music, sip a beer. The regional and local brews are plentiful at this Lake Tahoe annual event. You can purchase a commemorative glass to enjoy the beverages you sample. In the midst of the brews, the jazz and the funk, you can also explore the many shops and restaurants in the Village at Squaw Valley. And kids will have a blast making s’mores at the fire pits or playing a round of mini golf. A $5 entry donation is recommended, and it goes to the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe because what’s better than animals and good music? This event usually happens in early August.
