Experience classic Shakespearean theater outdoors—the way it was meant to be—at the spectacularly scenic Sand Harbor. Every summer, the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival brings award-winning performances to an exceptional setting with the “Jewel of the Sierra Nevada” serving as one majestic backdrop.

Imagine a perfect Lake Tahoe sunset, your special someone(s), and first-class live entertainment. That’s the magic of the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival.

The Shakespeare Festival Experience at Sand Harbor, Lake Tahoe

There’s nothing quite like the experience of sinking your toes in the sand and sipping a glass of wine as phenomenal Elizabethan theater is performed on arguably the world’s most scenic stage. That’s exactly what happens when the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival brings the Bard to life on the shores of Lake Tahoe at Sand Harbor. With performances held every evening from late June through late August, the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival is a must-have summer experience.

2024 features “The Merry Wives of Windsor” and “Always…Patsy Cline,” along with a live entertainment lineup full of ballet, jazz, rock cover bands, and more.

Dining at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival

Complement your Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival experience with al fresco dining from Shakespeare’s Kitchen. You can pick up fresh-made casual fare and drinks for a pre-show picnic in the dining area or at your seats, then enjoy dessert when the stand reopens at intermission. Patrons are also welcome to bring their own food into the festival. Small coolers and backpacks are allowed in select seating sections as long as they fit under your seat. And one word of advice? Try to limit or outright avoid glass and other breakable items to help keep the beaches safe for current and future visitors!
