10th Annual Sample the Sierra
Sample the Sierra, Lake Tahoe's largest farm-to-fork festival, is back to celebrate all that the Sierra Nevada region has to offer!
The 10th Annual Sample the Sierra is all about locally crafted FOOD, WINE, & BREW! The event brings together local chefs/restaurants with neighboring growers/producers to turn out scrumptious samples craftily paired with the appropriate wine or brew. The festival's marketplace includes locally made goods such as jam, soap, honey and olive oil along with specialty products created right here in the county, such as fine art, jewelry, and crafts.
For its 10th anniversary, the celebration will extend far beyond the one-day festival. The entire month of September will now feature special events, promotions, products, and experiences offered by festival vendors throughout the region. The month-long festivity will include diverse offerings such as tasting tours for ticket holders, pop-up dinners, discounts from local artisans, and community events.
Sample the Sierra also features the Sierra Chef Challenge, a cooking challenge between three regional chefs cooking with locally sourced ingredients. Watch four of the most talented chefs prepare delicious meals! For more info visit SampletheSierra.com.
