Now over two weeks into the season, autumn colors are coming out in full force. If you’re looking for a relaxing way to spend the weekend, head out to Alpine County’s Alpine Aspen Festival on Saturday and Sunday to rejoice in the season and participate in a variety of activities fun for the whole family.

“Join us at the Alpine Aspen Festival — a celebration of the beauty and vital role of aspen groves in providing clean water to millions of Californians and Nevadans. Come for the fall colors, stay for the adventure,” states Tahoe South’s webpage for the event.

Enjoy live music, workshops ranging from photography to watercolor, hikes, yoga and much more throughout the two-day event.

While the festival is free to attend, some additional activities — such as horseback riding, select ecology hikes and workshops — have participation costs.

“The Alpine Aspen Festival is Alpine Wastershed Group’s way of engaging the public to value watersheds as a critical common good. Festival proceeds help support Alpine Watershed Group in its work to protect and enhance your watershed,” states the webpage.

The Alpine Aspen Festival takes place in the Sno-Park located on Blue Lakes Road and Highway 88 in Alpine County.

The event begins at 10 a.m. on both days, closing at 8 p.m. on Saturday and 4 p.m. on Sunday.
