Art is a way to see the beauty of locations and cultures through the eyes of others. The Tahoe City area is rich with culture and is full of incredible local art. When you stay with us at Chinquapin, there are a few galleries and events that will tickle your artistic fancy.

Sidewalk Saturday

On the second Saturday of every month, there is a fantastic event held on the streets of downtown Tahoe City by the Tahoe City Downtown Association. Sidewalk Saturdays are where local art and craft shops and vendors display their creations for all to see and purchase throughout downtown. You can take a piece of Tahoe City and the surrounding areas home with you. Whether it is a painting that catches your eye or an intricate craft.

Arts, Crafts, and Socializing

For a bit of socializing, meeting local creators, and enjoying the beauty of the area, attend the Arts + Crafts Social that happens every spring. Spend $10 to come and create a fun project put on by Basecamp Tahoe City. For one day in March, April, and May, you can take part in a fun community night for a little artsy fun.
