Blue Ribbon Awards

Each year, the Tahoe Chamber spends an evening recognizing and celebrating outstanding South Lake Tahoe businesses and organizations.

Join the celebration of the most deserving South Shore businesses, non-profits and individuals for the 13th Annual Blue Ribbon Awards! The awards presentation will be pre-filmed and broadcast on Lake Tahoe TV on November 19th at 6 PM

Tune in for winner announcements in 9 key categories that recognize the businesses that make the South Shore unique. Register in advance to get direct access to the awards ceremony. Those that are in the mood to celebrate can hit the town to support a variety of local restaurants that will be offering special viewings or special happy hour menus for dine in or take out.

The Blue Ribbon Awards honor our business community every year for their accomplishments and contributions, and local businesses deserve this celebration more than ever due to their resilience throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. When registering, please consider making a donation to support this program and the Chamber’s ongoing commitment to supporting local businesses. Wine and beer celebration baskets are also available to purchase and enjoy while watching the award ceremony.

The Blue Ribbon Awards were created in 2007 to honor excellence in business on the South Shore. The awards program recognizes businesses, organizations, and individuals for achievements, community contributions, and milestones. It is one of the largest business awards program on the South Shore bringing together over 300 local business leaders, entrepreneurs, organizations, community members and government officials.
