INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Tahoe’s Connection for Families will host its sixth annual Tahoe Teddy Bear Picnic on Sunday, May 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Aspen Grove in Incline Village.

The event will take place rain or shine. Please note the back up location for wet weather is Incline Elementary School.

At this fun family event, kids and their teddy bears visit arts, crafts, game, and activity stations. This year’s guests will enjoy Bear Birthday Party, Camping, Construction, Face Painting, Bear Salon, Bear Doctor and Dentist Check Ups, a bounce house, and much more!

“Tahoe Teddy Bear Picnic is a wonderful time for families with young children,” TCF Founder and Director of Education Laurean Meyer said. “The children really enjoy the bear themed activities. Each year the time flies by for the children because they have such a blast!”

A $35 Bearific Ticket includes a teddy bear, TCF water bottle, drawstring backpack, lemonade, raffle tickets and more.

A $15 General Admission Ticket includes unlimited access to the bounce house and teddy bear themed booths and activities. Food will be available for purchase from local vendor Starkey’s Food Truck, and the event will include music by Mark Sexton.

The Bear League, Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS), Lake Tahoe School, Tahoe Expedition Academy, Realtor Grant C. Meyer, Truckee Pediatric Dentistry, Meyer Construction, Peanut Butter & Jellyfish, Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe, and Easel and Wine will be part of the activities.

In addition, many local families, businesses, and volunteers contribute to ensure the Teddy Bear Picnic’s success.

“After attending the event the past two years, I have truly been moved by the power of our community coming together,” shared Kim Holscher, TCF volunteer and chair of this year’s event. “Currently I am overcome with gratitude as volunteers offer their time, and companies and families willingly sponsor or donate.”

All proceeds from the event support Tahoe’s Connection for Families, an Incline nonprofit that provides parenting education and early childhood development programs for families with infants and toddlers up to preschool.
