Oktober’s Foam Fest Lake Tahoe

Like many areas in Northern California, Lake Tahoe’s history is rooted in the gold rush. Many immigrants who came to California during the gold rush were from southern Germany or Bavaria.

This may be why the architecture of Lake Tahoe showcases so many Alpine influences. The Alps are the mountainous region between Munich, Austria Switzerland and France.

Foam Fest Truckee

It is no wonder that the Oktoberfest has become such a central part of autumn festivities at Lake Tahoe. Covid-19 has let to the cancellation of several other brew events, but Truckee will continue to celebrate with a 'virtual' Foam Fest, which will go on throughout October. This is their 31st year and Foam Fest supports the efforts of Achieve Tahoe.

About Achieve Tahoe

In 1967, war veteran Jim Winthers brought together a group of disabled Vietnam Veterans and they all overcame the daunting challenge of learning to ski. At the time, adaptive sports equipment did not exist. The experience was so positive, Jim felt that the local community could benefit from a formalized program. Over the years, they have been able to help many disabled people enjoy skiing at Lake Tahoe.

Top Truckee Breweries

Although Foam Fest will not have large gatherings or the live music of past events, a trio of local breweries have joined forces to ensure that they can continue to support Achieve Tahoe and its programs. Throughout October these breweries will offer a 16 oz beer and commemorative glass at each location.

Alibi Ale Works Truckee Public House, Truckee Brewing Company and FiftyFifty Brewing Company are all participating in this virtual event. Tickets are available at a cost of $30, and your purchase will help Achieve Tahoe’s programs for adaptive sports and recreation for people with disabilities.

Oktoberfest with a Great Cause

Today, Achieve Tahoe provides year-round outdoor recreation activities for people with cognitive, sensory, and physical disabilities. They are proud to find ways to serve just about anyone with any disability. Focusing on health, confidence, and independence, they help people experience fun and a sense of accomplishment that will enhance other areas of their life.

Based in North Tahoe, Achieve Tahoe’s staff and volunteers provides adaptive ski instructor training and certification in order to teach people with disabilities to take on the slopes at local resorts.

These Veterans taught themselves and others how to ski and from there, this organization was born. This October, be sure to get your ticket, grab your beers and know you have contributed to a great cause.
