Join more than 30 artisans and craftspeople from around the West for Tahoe City’s Pacific Fine Arts Festival. This Lake Tahoe annual event takes place over two, back-to-back weekends in mid-August. Art admirers/creators/enthusiasts come together on the open, grassy Boatworks Mall in downtown Tahoe City to appreciate artists’ talents and products against the picturesque Lake Tahoe backdrop. Explore the stands displaying works of photography, oil painting, ceramics, jewelry, pottery, woodwork, metalwork, wearable art and more. Many of the works embrace a Pacific-coast influence that makes them unlike other pieces you might find elsewhere. The three-day event also gives you the opportunity to meet the artists and craftspeople and ask them questions about their work. It’s a great way to enjoy Lake Tahoe’s community of artists and residents. The festival has free admission and lasts from morning and until evening, giving you the option to pass through quickly or spend all day examining the products. If you’re an art lover, you won’t want to miss it. And even if you’re not, Art by the Lake has the power to change your perspective.
