A South Lake Tahoe hotel will host “a celebration showcasing eco-friendly local businesses” for this year’s Earth Day.

Earth Day’s Birthday at 968 Park Hotel will include beer and wine tastings, food, live music and Tahoe businesses showcasing their sustainable practices. The event is free and open to the public from 5-10 p.m. Friday, April 22.

The event will feature coffee by Blind Dog Coffee, beer by Anderson Valley Brewing Company and wine by Chateau Davell Winery.

“Chateau Davell’s Vineyards are situated at a 1,200-foot elevation, above French Creek in Shingle Springs,” according to the winery. “The property, which is also home to three generations of our family, benefits from being surrounded by biodiversity that serves as a natural immune system for the vineyard and gardens. When combined with organic and biodynamic farming methods, this symbiotic relationship not only eliminates the need for chemical pesticides but supports the vitality of the surrounding ecosystem.”

Mic Smith will also perform at Friday’s event. Smith performs an acoustic combination of alternative, indie and blues music. His influences and cover songs include cuts by Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Marvin Gaye, Amos Lee and Incubus, among others.

Elevated Fitness and the Sugar Pine Foundation will take park in the event as well.

The hotel is located at 968 Park Avenue in South Lake Tahoe.
