Things to do and places to go to make the most out of April in Truckee.

GO SEE THIS →  Friday, April 7, Arts For The Schools presents Gaelynn Lea, the winner of the 2016 NPR Tiny Desk Concert competition. Out-performing over 6,100 other entries, Gaelynn's beautiful lyrics and violin captured the hearts and ears of all of her judges. Gaelynn combines popular folk and rock sounds with traditional Celtic and American fiddle to produce a sound all her own.

As a sufferer of Brittle Bones Disease, Gaelynn uses her music and its success as a platform to advocate for people with disabilities and to promote positive social change. Come out to see this Star-on-the-Rise and support not just her haunting music, but also her cause.

SPEND EASTER SUNDAY HERE →  Sunday, April 16 from 10 AM - 2 PM, The Lodge Restaurant & Pub at Tahoe Donner will host a delicious all-you-can-eat Easter brunch buffet and Easter Eggstravaganza hunt for the kids with plenty of eggs to go around. Kids 12 and under will enjoy carnival games, spoon races, crafts, face painting and a performance by Penney the Bunny.

CELEBRATE THE EARTH HERE →  Saturday, April 22, celebrate the Earth and join Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows for the largest eco-event in the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee area. Truckee Tahoe Earth Day gives participants the opportunity to learn about earth-friendly practices including recycling, composting, alternative energy and sustainability.
