Alpen Wine Fest - Squaw Valley - Sept 2 2018

Fall is right around the corner, so now is the time to enjoy being here in the North Lake Tahoe - Truckee area!

This holiday weekend is loaded with fun events and things to do.

On Sunday, September 2, 2018 the 30th Annual Alpen Wine Festival will be held at the Village at Squaw Valley!

The Alpen Wine Fest - Squaw Valley - Sept 2 2018 at the Village at Squaw Valley, is an easy way to spend the day outside enjoying our sunshine, blue skies, live music and sampling some great wines!  

At the Alpen Wine Fest you'll get to sample wines from over 40 different wineries, or wine merchants. 

This is a great way to find a new favorite wine, or try wines you are not already familiar with, or wouldn't necessarily try on your own.

All proceeds benefit the Can Do MS, a non-profit foundation that delivers health and wellness education programs to  families living with MS thrive.

If you love wine this is your chance to sample, and enjoy our beautiful Tahoe late summer weather (the weather forecast for this weekend is for sunshine and day time temperatures in the mid 70's).

They will also have a great line-up of live music with Beyond the Rails and Jeff Jones bands playing at the event!

You’ll have from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. to wonder through the Village at Squaw Valley and enjoy this event. 

What a great way to support a great non-profit group and make a fun day out of the donation!
