Annual Truckee Wine Walk – 2018
It is almost time for the 15th downtown Annual Truckee Wine Walk – 2018, Saturday, October 6, 2018.
The Downtown Truckee Wine Walk and Shop event has become a favorite event to end our amazing Tahoe summer season.
Our weather has cooled things off, but that won’t stop our local fun.
This annual event brings in over 1,000 participants to sip, sample, and enjoy a day of being in downtown Historic Truckee.
This year the Tahoe City Wine Walk sold out almost two weeks before the event, and it is very possible that the Truckee Wine Walk could also sell out before the day of the event, so if you haven’t purchased your tickets, now is the time to do so.
Attendees should dress in layers and be prepared to be warm in the sunshine, but it also means that you’ll want a light jacket, or sweater for the shade, or if the wind picks up.
Those that go will enjoy being in historic Downtown Truckee and they will get the chance to sample some great wines, food from local restaurants and caterers, along with a wonderful day of shopping.
This year Truckee Wine Walk and Shop attendees will receive a commemorative wine glass to sample wine at more than 30 tasting locations and you’ll also get, five (5) food tickets, and a program with a map to all participating venues in the downtown Truckee area with your ticket purchase.
Yes, non-drinkers are welcome too, and you should ask about their designated driver program.
Each year the Annual Truckee Wine Walk event has partnered with a local charity and will donate a portion of the proceeds.
Over the past fourteen years over $26,000 has been donated to local non-profit groups.
What a great way to have fun and support the community and all you have to do is buy a Downtown Truckee Wine Walk ticket!

So here are few of my wine walking tips to make the most of the upcoming Downtown Truckee Wine Walk:
- Dress in layers, and wear comfortable shoes.
- Eat a good breakfast, and bring along a bottle of water.
- Pace yourself. Sip, don’t guzzle. You’ll have four hours of drinking, eating, and walking ahead of you at an elevation of 6,200+ feet above sea level, so it can take a toll on your body.
- It’s okay to stop for meal if you aren’t finding enough to eat with your food tickets. I am a vegetarian and my sampling options are often limited.
- If your group won’t slow down for a sit-down meal, call and place a to-go order at one of the local restaurants that are open for lunch. Trust me on this one, your friends will be impressed on how well organized your are, and they will wonder why they also didn’t place a food order to go too! It’s a win-win for everyone, you’ll have something to eat, and won’t lose any wine tasting time in the process.
- Enjoy the moment and experience. Make memories. Most event goers do the wine walk with friends, so this is a time to celebrate the changing of seasons, and a time to just be together. Be silly, have fun, find something outrageous to buy, and take selfies!
If you kicked-off the summer in June during the Summer solstice with the Tahoe City Wine Walk (we were volunteers and had a great time at that sold-out event), this is a great way to end the season by being at the Truckee Wine Walk and Shop event in October.
Make plans to get tickets and be at the 15th Annual Truckee Wine, Walk and Shop event in Downtown Historic Truckee, CA Saturday, October 6, 2018!
