Our events are open to all who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, including our friends and allies. Our goals for these events are to increase LGBTQ+ awareness, visibility, support and acceptance in Lake Tahoe on both sides of the state line. We accomplish this by holding our events at public venues where we are sure to be noticed. Below you will find brief descriptions of the kinds of the events we have offered. Events rely on the efforts of volunteers. If you'd like to host a meetup or organize an event please attend one of our monthly mixers, or interact with us through our Facebook.
Mixers: A Mixer is the original, official monthly LGBT & Friends-Allies social get-together. The Mixer is held at a public pub &/or eatery where alcohol & food is served. Mixers are held a few times a month at various locations in the South Lake Tahoe area. They are a great opportunity to visit with friends, meet new people, and network. Facebook is your best way to find out what's going on.
Future Focus Meetings: This is a meeting open to all where we get together and discuss how Tahoe Pride can contribute and get involved with our community.
Meet-ups: A meet-up is an informal gathering at a public venue. Examples include Music on the Beach, Shakespeare Festival, PRIDE events, Gay & Lesbian Ski Weeks, Reno-Sacramento field trips, and more. We also hold meet-ups for community sensitive and relevant events. Post your meet-up ideas to the Lake Tahoe Pride Facebook. Lately we've had a members post gatherings for Queer Climbers, bike rides, and hikes. What a great way to enjoy the great outdoors here at Tahoe.
Beach Days: Beach Days are a great way to enjoy some summer sun and socialize with friends. This is an all-ages event. Bring your beach towel, bathing suit and sunscreen. Beach Days are held at a public beach which offers food and beverage services, motorized and non-motorized water crafts, volleyball courts, and public restrooms.
The South Lake Tahoe 4th July Community Parade: Beginning a couple years ago we entered the local civic parade to rave reviews, even getting a photo on the front page of the local paper.
Tahoe Pride Month: The official Tahoe Pride Month (established in 2011) will be held in the month of June. While we haven't yet reached a stage for a Pride Festival or Parade we welcome volunteers to champion such an endeavor. Some of our past Pride Month highlights have included hikes, beach days, and all-ages events like an ice cream social.
Snow-Days: The Snow-Days include snowshoeing at a variety of locations in and beyond the Tahoe basin, and skiing/snowboarding meet-ups at local ski resorts. We encourage all fitness levels to participate, but bear in mind your own abilities and limitations. Please bring the appropriate gear and dress in layers. We like to depart promptly, so please be on time.
