Summer is slowly coming to an end, and Labor Day weekend in Lake Tahoe is a perfect bookend to all of the summer excitement. recommends checking out the Sample the Sierra Festival, Kiwanis Community Fair, and watching the Labor Day fireworks explode over the lake. With so many fun things to do in Lake Tahoe during Labor Day weekend, it will be impossible not to have fun. It might be time to wave summer goodbye, but at least it’s leaving with a bang!

Sample the Sierra

The 4th annual Sample the Sierra festival is happening September 1st, an exciting event that brings South Lake Tahoe farm fresh produce to be prepared by local chefs and paired with delicious wines and beers. The festival is all about celebrating the region’s heritage and harvest.

Sample the Sierra takes place from 1pm - 5pm on Ski Run Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe, so bring the family and make the most of this Labor Day event! Tickets are still available, and cost $30.00. Look forward to artisan vendors, live music, and, of course, incredible food.

Kiwanis Community Fair

Carnival rides, food, and great events galore! Parents beware: too much carnival food and a ride on the Tornado might mean heads in the trashcan. This event is free to the public, and takes place in the Heavenly Resort parking lot from Friday through Sunday.

Firework Show

End the summer with a bang of fireworks. With so many viewpoints all around the lake, it would be impossible to miss this year’s display, taking place on September 2 at 8:30pm. The editors of have come up with best three spots for watching the fireworks this year:

  • Nevada Beach: South Lake Tahoe travelers and locals will be snuggling up on blankets on Nevada Beach. With Lake Tahoe lighting up with the display, Nevada Beach provides South Lake Tahoe travelers with the best view. Nevada Beach is located in Nevada, on the southeast shore, and about a 10 minute drive from Stateline. 
  • Commons Beach: For North Lake Tahoe firework displays Commons Beach is the best way to feel the magic. Families can bring their kids and enjoy the jungle gym before the big show. Rest rooms and BBQ grills are available (but maybe hard to come by on Labor Day weekend). 
  • Out on the Lake: What better place to watch the show than out on Lake Tahoe? The M.S Dixie provides the perfect opportunity to watch the sky illuminate from the lake. This cruise departs at 5:30 pm, and returns at 9:30 pm with dinner on board! Get on the dinner/dance extravaganza for $129 for adults and children. Tickets sell out quickly, so book while they’re still available!
