Sample the Sierra turns five years old on August 31 and we will not only be celebrating with great food, wine and art, but we’ll also be celebrating at a new location!
For the past 4 years, Ski Run Blvd in South Lake Tahoe hosted Sample the Sierra, but the festival has grown since its beginnings and the festival needed a larger venue to accommodate more restaurants, wineries and artisans. While we are sad to leave Ski Run Blvd, we are excited to start a new chapter for Sample the Sierra at Bijou Community Park.
