Location - Driving Directions

The Alpine Aspen Festival takes place in Hope Valley, Alpine County, California. This is roughly 1/2 hour south of Lake Tahoe, or 3/4 hour south of Carson City, or 2 hours east of Sacramento. But plan a little extra time for a leisurely drive as you stop to photograph the brilliant fall colors!

The Festival headquarters is Hope Valley Recreation Area on Blue Lakes Road in Alpine County, California, but some activities will go a few miles off-site.
