The Tahoe South Events Center officially began to take form on July 9, 2020, with our “socially distant” Groundbreaking Ceremony on-site at the Montbleu Resort Casino and Spa. NBC celebrities, Doug Flutie and Kathryn Tappen were honored guests at the ceremony and proceeded to dedicate the afternoon by chipping golf balls into a reduced 19th green. A creative adaptation to the traditional sod-turning ceremony.
Site work began in earnest on July 20 and will continue through until October 31. In a true spirit of community and business cooperation, excavated spoils from the Tahoe Events Center site are being removed and exported across Highway 50 to the Tahoe Beach Club to provide the Beach Club with much-needed fill for their expansive project. A “win-win” for both projects.
