This event is highly anticipated by locals and visitors alike. Held each May in the Village at Squaw Valley, Made in Tahoe Festival is a celebration of anything and everything that is made with love locally. The two-day extravaganza includes plenty of booths that showcase the various offerings of our local artisans, including handmade skis, jewelry, clothing and unique pieces of art that can only be found among the magic of Lake Tahoe. Beyond the shopping for handmade treasures, there is also live music, entertainment, food, beer and chef's tastings. The event is held in late May. As Lake Tahoe has a rich stock of highly talented artisans, be sure to make this an all-day event for the entire family. Your time will not be wasted. Oh, and to make the festival that much better, it's free!
