The Sharp Team’s Top 5 Picks for Memorial Day Weekend Events

With Memorial Day Weekend just a day away, we’re gearing up with a full list of activities for you to partake in over the upcoming 3 day weekend. Everything from outdoor recreation, to locally made goods, to a paddle board race on Donner Lake.



  1. Northstar Resort opens their hiking trails, and bike park. For all of your downhill mountain bikers, that means lifts will be turning and trails will be ready. With all the moisture we’ve received over the last two weeks, the dirt should be in prime condition.


  1. Taking place on Saturday is the Tahoe Cup Racing Series, the first of the three event series, at Donner Lake. The Donner Lake Race is open to all paddling craft and welcomes participants of all ability levels, from the recreational paddler to the SUP elite racer. On-line registration is recommended  for this event.  Race day registration starts at 8:00 am. The race starts at 9:00 am from the West End Beach (Pavilion area) in a 5-mile race around the shoreline of Donner Lake.
  2. In addition to the super fun Tahoe Cup Racing Series, Westend Beach at Donner Lake opens! Fun for the whole family, and hopefully the weather will cooperate for these awesome summer based activities to take place.


  1. Taking place on Saturday and Sunday is the Truckee Home & Building Show. Enjoy finding everything you need to build, remodel, landscape and decorate your mountain home. There will be over 150 displays and demonstrations taking place. This is a two day event, taking place both Saturday and Sunday from 10:00-5:00 at the Truckee High School.
  2. One of our favorite events of the year is the Made in Tahoe Festival taking place in the Village at Squaw Valley. Made in Tahoe Festival celebrates all things local. The Village at Squaw Valley will host a wide array of offerings that are made or inspired in the Lake Tahoe Basin and Truckee areas- local artisans, businesses, culinarians, organizations and entertainers. Discover, explore and experience our special community rich with talented creators!​ This event is rain or shine. This event takes place on both Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 AM.
