Many are beginning to wind down and out of summer mode to get ready for the upcoming school year, but that’s not the case with Tahoe South! With a full menu of events and recreation, we’re not saying goodbye to the warm summer months just yet. Fortunately, these events are close to the Ridge Tahoe and most are just an easy ride away on our complimentary shuttle. Let the fun begin!

Starting this weekend, singer/songwriter Jack Johnson will perform for the first time since 2014 at Harvey’s Outdoor Arena. He is famous for his soothing, island jams like “Banana Pancakes” and “Upside Down.”

On Thursday, July 27, Live at Lakeview hosts their free concert on the beach, where locals and visitors gather to listen to an array of music while watching the sun set on picturesque Lake Tahoe.

The Heavenly Village Concert Series begins at 5 p.m. July 28-29. This concert is conveniently located in the middle of the Heavenly Village. This family-friendly event is free.
