Fall Into Art: Celebrating Truckee Cultural District September – October

Our Truckee Cultural District Artist of the Week at the final Truckee Thursdays this season is a collaboration of many genres of artists coming together for a celebration of all things art in Truckee. To show off Truckee’s coveted California Cultural District designation and highlight its numerous and diverse cultural offerings this September and October, Visit Truckee created Fall Into Art, a fall festival bringing all offerings into one season-long celebration. 

“The inaugural Fall Into Art event is Truckee’s own ‘Artown,’ with signature events including Art & Soul Downtown ArtWalk, Trails & Vistas Art Hikes, 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 in 2017, 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.
