Vibrant energy fills South Lake Tahoe in the fall as people gather from all over the country. Embraced by pine trees and a cool autumn air, hundreds of friends and families attend Sample the Sierra farm-to-fork festival. A distinct spirit fills every corner of Bijou Community Park through waves of laughter, music, toasts, and conversations. The main events, of course, are the tents of local fares. Restaurants and chefs cook up delicious dishes that include local farm-fresh ingredients, while the region’s finest wineries, breweries, and distilleries pour their best selections. For many, it has become a yearly tradition.
Organizers, sponsors, and vendors are looking forward to bringing the spirit back to the lake. This year will be elevated into an afternoon “soiree until sunset” with limited tickets to provide an intimate atmosphere after a tough year and a half for many.
