TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Trails & Vistas nonprofit organization is hosting a fundraiser with Wildcard Brewery at New Moon in Truckee on Friday, April 24, from 5-8 p.m.

The beer-tasting event has a suggested donation of $10, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Trails & Vistas, a nonprofit that inspires community through the celebration of the arts in nature.

The evening will include beer tasting with a variety of beers for everyone. Guests can also mingle at New Moon and enter to win tickets to the annual Trails & Vistas World Concert, scheduled for Sept. 12 at Sand Harbor and featuring Grammy Winner Pacific Mambo Orchestra.

“Good brews, good people, and support a local nonprofit at the same time — that is a win-win situation,” said board member Dan Joseph.

Trails & Vistas board members will be on hand for anyone who has questions about the nonprofit, the World Concert or other events like its annual guided art hikes, nature field trips community art/dance workshops, and the Truckee Historic Haunted Tour in October.

“The team at Wildcard Brewery is a perfect match for our fun and intelligent board of directors and hand-crafted events,” said board member Karin Carrassco.

New Moon is located at 11357 Donner Pass Road, next to the DMV.


“The World Concert: A Peace Project of Truckee Tahoe” will also include Tahoe favorite Peter Joseph Burtt and the KingTide; Scarlet Rivera, one of the world’s most prominent and versatile violinists; and Tahoe Bagpiper Sean Cummings, among others.

The night under the stars will close out the Encore Series of the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor.

This year’s Guided Art Hike will take place along an aspen lined trail at Spooner Lake in the Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park on Sept. 12, and the stunning vistas overlooking Donner Lake on Sept. 19 at Donner Ski Ranch.

Each Art Hike will showcase local and visiting musicians, artisans and storytellers with 10 art and music installation sites along a three-mile hiking trail.

This year’s Art Hike and World Concert are co-hosted by Community Partners of Lake Tahoe Nevada State Parks and Shakespeare Festival at Lake Tahoe, and sponsored by Tahoe Vistana Inn and Kelly Brothers Painting.

Tickets for both events went on sale this week. Art Hike early bird tickets are $35 for adults and $12 for children (4 to 10 years old) and are recommended for physically healthy hikers who are accustomed to hiking at high altitude for three hours.

Tickets for the World Concert start at $23. Visit to buy tickets and for more information.
