New Year’s Eve North Lake Tahoe - Truckee December 31 2017 

The year is almost over and if you're in the North Lake Tahoe - greater Truckee area this New Year's Eve holiday weekend, here are some of our local events that will happen on  New Year's Eve North Lake Tahoe - Truckee December 31 2017!

There are so many great things about living here in the North Lake Tahoe - Truckee area, but our local holiday events are always a lot of fun, and many are free!

If your plans are to stay in and celebrate in your Tahoe home that's always a fun choice, but if you are now having second thoughts, it's not too late to make last-minute reservations  for a New Year's Eve dinner, or to get reservations at one of the holiday dinner-dance parties here in the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee area.

While some events may have already sold out, keep dialing there are still places that have availability.

If you're thinking about something more casual, don't forget you'll find free events and firework shows at both The Village at Squaw Valley and at the Northstar Village on December 31, 2017.

If you're thinking about something more casual, don't forget you'll find free events and firework shows in the North Lake Tahoe area at either  Northstar, or at Squaw Valley.

We been to both the Northstar annual Fire and Ice New Year’s Eve Celebration and the fire works show at Squaw Valley and both will help you feel festive and are a great way to bring in the New Year.

As Craig and I get older, we find that there is just something special about seeing fire works and their beautiful display of vivid color over snow covered ski runs with the outline of the respective villages that makes a really impressive sight!

Northstar Village FireworksA couple of tips if you're headed to one of the outdoor events:

  • Dress Warmly - You'll want to dress warmly and in layers as you'll be outside and the weather for New Year's Eve is expected to be in the mid 20's!
  • Be Early - Parking is always a challenge during our peak visit seasons, and during the Christmas - New Year's holiday period, we're at capacity, so allow enough time for parking and finding a good spot to watch the show!  Events tend to start on time so give yourself extra travel time so you can be early.
  • Flashlight - Not every place has outdoor lighting at night in our area. Always bring along a small flashlight (Don't count on your cell phone flashlight.  At the end of the evening phone battery life is often low, or gone, so carry a real flashlight.) making it easy to find your way back to the place you are staying, or back to your car.

If you want to avoid the crowds and watch the fireworks from your car, find a good spot in the parking lot, or anywhere you can see the ski resorts.

You'll have a good view and your own private show.  If you brink lawn chairs you can sit by your car and still have the entire outdoor experience!

Lastly, most of our free events will celebrate New Year's Eve at 9 p.m. so you can enjoy the fireworks and attend another party to bring in the New Year at midnight here in the North Lake TahoeTruckee, California area.

Here is the schedule of the Free Northstar New Year's Eve events:

There are many restaurants and bars in the area that will also be having special New Year's Eve events, but if you're looking for free entertainment you have plenty of local event options to bring in the new year.
