Due to social distancing measures associated with COVID-19, The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival will be postponed until the summer of 2021. If you desire a little bit of culture with your mountain experience, then you are in for a treat with the annual Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival. This festival is a coming together of highly talented theatrical acts interlaced with the elegance of fine dining set in an al fresco ambiance that looks out upon a luxurious Tahoe setting, giving you the opportunity to run your fingers through the sand and to relax into an evening of suspense and intrigue. One of the greatest aspects of the summer-long festival is its D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program that gives an opportunity for the youth to access the stage. Throughout the summer, the program offers free performances that are produced for younger audiences. Each showing at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival is combined with the impressive dining menu of the on-site restaurant, Shakespeare's Kitchen, which provides an excellent array of gourmet food and drinks. Patrons are also invited to bring their own picnic. Beyond the delectable dining options, there is a lovely cocktail area as well as a place to purchase keepsakes to take home with you. To take advantage of the entire evening, it is highly recommended that you come early and enjoy the pre-show festivities and to mingle and take in the stunning surrounding scenery. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Parking is limited and costs $10. Parking permits can be purchased online but do not guarantee a parking space, so please be sure to show up early.
