The Arts, Culture & History

Performing Arts & Organizations

Organizations (theater, dance, advocacy, non-profits)

Inspired by natural beauty and mountain scenery, Truckee has a creative culture that is rugged, vibrant, innovative and resourceful. Truckee has a growing entrepreneurial, artistic community with several organizations that inspire, catalyze and advocate for the arts and performance venues in Truckee. Unique to our mountain town, performing arts can be seen in outdoor amphitheaters or along the trail at events where art, music and dance combine with nature.
