Happy New Year's Eve from All of Us at Tahoe.com

By Shanie Matthews

It is hard to believe that we are in the last few days of 2016. 2017 is right around the corner, which means parties a plenty in Lake Tahoe.

If you are ready to mingle with people who enjoy the outdoors, love to laugh and dance the night away, then it’s time to bring in the New Year in Tahoe. Here are five events that I'm excited about. I hope to see you out and about! Happy New Year!

Unbuckle Apres Party With Heavenly Angels


The Heavenly Mountain Resort hosts an excellent way to enjoy the party scene with their Unbuckle Apres Party with Heavenly Angels. This is a weekly event that lasts all season long and is not for the faint of heart. Happening at 9,150 feet, at the top of the Gondola, the party is a two-hour extravaganza of live DJs, drinks and food specials and the excitement of watching the Heavenly Angel Dancers get their groove on. The bash happens every Friday and Saturday, including this December 30 and 31, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. This party is rated M for Mature.

Steve Barton Winter Art Show

A wonderful opportunity to connect with artists and the artistic side of life, the Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery is offering the Steve Barton Winter Art Show. Steve Barton himself will be providing a live demonstration of his incredible talent, focusing in on the vibrant serenity of Mother Nature. The gathering is on Friday, December 30, from 12 to 5 p.m.

The following three events are celebrations for the New Year. Please visit last week’s blog post for three other parties that also deserve mention.
