150 years ago, on May 10, 1869, the Transcontinental Railroad was completed, forever changing the landscape of the Truckee-Donner Summit area. This sesquicentennial of the Transcontinental Railroad marks the spanning of the continent with rails and a revolution to this area and the country. The railroad brought both freight and travelers to Truckee, helped create our local lumber and ice industries, and brought writers and artists to capture the beauty of the area.
Truckee is known for it’s pioneering spirit, vision, drive, and passion to make something better for the future and the world. A fitting description of a today’s Truckee entrepreneur.
This year at the 2018 Truckee Chamber of Commerce Awards Dinner will acknowledge and celebrate the Truckee business community and the pivotal role it plays in strengthening the economy.
The event is known for being the one time each year when the business community comes together to Celebrate Truckee’s Own and to recognize and honor individuals and businesses raising the bar.
No matter what time of the year, Truckee always has something fun happening! Check out our featured events for music, festivals, arts, culture, sports, adventures and more!
