Fall Into Art (Sept./Oct.)

To show off Truckee’s coveted California Cultural District designation and highlight its diverse cultural offerings, Visit Truckee created Fall Into Art, a fall festival bringing all offerings into one season-long celebration this September and October!

The Second Annual Fall Into Art event is Truckee’s own ‘Artown,’ with signature events including Art & Soul, Trails and Vistas, and Arts for the Schools performances,” says Colleen Dalton, director of Truckee tourism and economic programs. “Since Truckee won the sought-after California Cultural District designation, our art community has come together more than ever to celebrate our history, creativity, and mountain vibe.”

During the Fall Into Art festival, look for a wide range of artistic and cultural offerings, including visual, performance, written, culinary, and musical work; historical tours, talks, and tributes; and recreational opportunities that honor the mountain lifestyle. Learn more at
