Giddyup to Nevada

If you're visiting the South Lake Tahoe area, make the short drive to Genoa, Nevada, and check out the Cowboy Festival. This expansive celebration of Western Culture takes place at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, surrounded by the stunning Carson Valley. It's as authentic as it gets - Nevada's first ranch was located right here!

There's so much to see and do this year - barbecues, barn dances, live music galore, photography exhibits, open mic events, harmonica workshops, antique shows, quick draw lessons (for all you gunslingers)...whew, and that's just a taste of what you can experience.

The Festival has partnered with 7 nearby lodging partners, making it easy to stay for all 4 days of fun. Just make your reservations early!
