The summer and winter months tend to be the busiest in terms of northern California and Lake Tahoe events, since that's when the weather tends to cooperate for outdoor festivals or winter sports extravaganzas. Still, no matter what time of year you choose to visit, you'll find a town or county waiting eagerly to show you a good time. From olive, wine, and chocolate festivals to snowshoe races and cowboy poetry shows, you'll never want for something interesting to do.
