A century ago, they gathered for barn raisings. Today, the people of Carson Valley celebrate in less strenuous settings, sharing the likes of concerts, wine tastings, art shows, parades, theater, the arrival of bald eagles, and the debut of Saint Nick. It’s like this all year, at every corner of the valley, a roster of good times with those who have an entertaining history.
This valley has never been shy on stories or color. History has been beautifully bold – from the rail-thin Pony Express mounts to silver barons of the Comstock boom. The many museums, sites, Chatauquas and celebrations that preserve and retell those glories runs far and wide. Here’s a starter menu:
Arts and culture thrive at every turn, serving up a wonderfully wild journey of the extremes. Whether your mood is fixed on an evening of classical music, a storytelling session, a world class ensemble, art lessons, a quilt show, county fair or air show, one of these occasions should help fill the bill.
