EVENT DATE: Mar 04, 2016
THE STORY: SnowFest! is a beloved annual event that takes place along the North Shore of Lake Tahoe and Truckee.
For nearly 35 years, events such parades on the street and by torchlight on a mountain, polar bear plunges, luaus, dog sled races, and food and wine events have brought the community together and inspired tourists with a love of Tahoe to return year after year. SnowFest is the area’s only fundraiser that raises funds and awareness for local charities and non-profit organizations.
SnowFest also helps local businesses thrive by promoting and supporting resorts, attractions, restaurants, bars, and stores.
Sadly, SnowFest is at risk of being discontinued. Draught and diminishing sponsorship have taken their toll and now SnowFest needs your help!
Today SnowFest is run by a team of dedicated and loyal volunteers. Under new leadership, SnowFest has moved their office to a shared space in order to reduce cost. Additional efforts are being made to cut costs, obtain financial sponsorship, and grants.
We are hopeful that SnowFest 2016 will be bigger and better than ever, but the organization is barely getting by. Our goal of $15,000 will not only help fund this year’s event, but could greatly contribute to our 2017 event and beyond.
With YOUR help, we can keep this incredible tradition alive. The 35th Annual SnowFest events are scheduled to take place March 4-13, 2016!
