[Olympic Valley, Calif.] May 20, 2020—Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start to summer, and at Squaw Valley, that means the return of the annual Made in Tahoe Festival. This year, because of COVID-19 guidelines and social distancing, the event will take place virtually on Facebook May 22 -25. Over 50 local businesses, artisans, and entertainers will be sharing their Truckee and Tahoe-inspired work. Take advantage of special discounts, new work unveilings and special demonstrations. 

“We couldn’t let Memorial Day and the kick-off to summer pass without some recognition and celebration of our talented local community so we’re hosting a virtual event so that Tahoe fans from across the globe can celebrate the creative culture we are so proud of,” said Caroline Ross, executive director for the Squaw Village Neighborhood Company. “We are looking forward to the rescheduled event to take place in The Village October 10 and 11th but the Facebook event is a great way to participate and support our local businesses and artists this Memorial Day weekend”.
