Our Mission and Vision
Lake Tahoe SummerFest is a world-class celebration of the arts that enriches the cultural, educational, and economic vitality of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Our quest is to provide extraordinary music, art, theatre, and seminars to local, national, and international audiences.
Lake Tahoe SummerFest supports cultural tourism and economic development for Nevada. Through this vision we seek to develop an international destination for those who seek inspiration from superb classical music, interactive visual and performing arts, and stimulating conversation in the pristine setting of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Lake Tahoe.
Lake Tahoe SummerFest values artistic excellence, collaboration, and community; and most importantly...values children and families.
Lake Tahoe SummerFest includes several independently operated arts organizations presenting exceptional arts and cultural programs and events that take place annually during July and August at Lake Tahoe.
As a recognized leader in the international music and arts community, and the educational and cultural life of Nevada and California, Lake Tahoe SummerFest transforms the public’s relationship with music, art, and theatre, particularly for children and families, and receives local, state, regional, and national support.
Lake Tahoe SummerFest long-term vision includes growing audience numbers, increasing program scope and quality, expanding educational experiences for children in Nevada and California, training future musicians and artists, and attracting a broad and dedicated donor base.
Please join us to make this dream a reality this year, and in years to come.
