Gar Woods to Host 3rd Annual Labor Day Fireworks Spectacular on Sunday, September 6th
Carnelian Bay, CA August 19, 2015 – Home of the “Wet Woody”, Gar Woods Grill & Pier and The Monte Foundation will be hosting their 3rd Annual “Fireworks Spectacular” on Sunday, September 6th at 8:30pm. You are invited to sit front row on the action and watch the Labor Day Weekend sky light up just off Gar Woods pier. Many have said this is the best firework show they’ve ever seen, so don’t miss out!
The lakefront fireworks show will not only pay homage to the social and economic achievement of workers but will also benefit North Tahoe-Truckee Area High School Sports Programs. In the last two years this event has raised over $48,000 that went directly to funding local sports programs and they are out to break a record this year.
In addition to the money Gar Woods donates from the evening, Incline High School athletes will be selling event T-shirts and glow sticks on the beach that will contribute to the proceeds. Guests can also leave a donation on their credit card, write a big fat check or leave lots of cash while dining at Gar Woods, Bar of America, or Caliente this month. 100% of these donations will go directly to high school sports programs in the Tahoe-Truckee Area.
Gar Woods is an iconic cornerstone restaurant in North Tahoe known for it’s amazing food, drinks and view. Owner Tom Turner believes in giving back to the community that has supported Gar Woods for 27 years. He looks forward to this year’s benefit and that will contribute to well-being of North Tahoe.

It's that season... the days are long, Wet Woodys are flowing, and it's the best time of year to get out on the Lake and enjoy your boat with friends and family! Did you know that Gar Woods Grill & Pier, located in Carnelian Bay, provides a complimentary boat valet service all summer long?? (Pending weather conditions). If you're enjoying a day out on the lake, don't miss a great lunch out on Gar Woods huge patio overlooking the lake. Good times are to be had - Summer 2015!
Shortly following the start of Spring is one of our favorite holidays at Gar Woods...Easter! Every year we do an Easter egg hunt for the kiddos and shortly after that an adult egg hunt (read: libations). You can tell from the photos below from previous years that Gar Woods is clearly the place to be on Easter Sunday. If you haven't been to one of our gourmet buffet brunches you should strongly consider making 2015 your year of firsts. Make your reservation today!
The Gar Woods Polar Bear Swim takes place during the Tahoe City SnowFest! each year (February & March). This year the swim was celebrated during one of the largest (and only) snow storms of 2015. Brrrr!! Swimmers endured the 39 degree, bone chilling water and had to swim approximately 250 yards to complete the race. Fewer swimmers participated this year than most... but that meant more hot tub space and extra Wet Woodys for those brave souls!
The hugely popular raffle took place in the Gar Woods' Speed Boat Bar immediately following the race. Some great raffle prizes were given out this year thanks to local sponsors and everyone had a great time celebrating the much needed snowstorm in the spirit of SnowFest!

Gar Woods feels honored to be featured in Tahoe Unveiled again this Month. Kyle and Meagan got married at Gar Woods Grill & Pier this last June and it was an absolutely spectacular wedding that deserves recognition in the Top 5. The decor was beautiful, the food was delicious and the people who attended this lake front wedding made this night very special.

"We considered a variety of different locations in the area, but after Kyle’s company hosted an awesome Fourth of July party at Gar Woods, we knew it was the perfect fit. The lakeside location is unbeatable, but what made the location a good fit was the great attitude of the restaurant staff – we knew they’d help us achieve our ultimate goal which was to throw an awesome celebration with our family and friends." - Bride Meagan
