Fire Fest is back!

Fire Fest 2023 will be held on Saturday, September 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside the Golden Nugget (formerly Hard Rock Hotel & Casino) Lake Tahoe. Admission is free, and the event is a great opportunity for families to have fun while learning about safety and conservation.

Helicopters will be the stars this year and will land just outside the venue. Guests can get a close up look and crews will be on hand to answer questions.

Back this year, the burn house sprinkler demonstration. Kids can climb aboard a fire engine, squirt a fire hose, enjoy the bounce house, and escape from the burn house. There will also be an opportunity to watch local firefighters use the jaws of life to extract someone from a demolished vehicle, as well as the chance to win raffle prizes for kid’s who complete the passport activity. 

Fire Fest began as a way to recognize National Fire Prevention Week, which was initially established in remembrance of the great Chicago fire of 1891, and to keep the public informed about the importance of fire prevention.  

In 1920, President Woodrow Wilson issued the first National Fire Prevention Day proclamation, and since 1922, Fire Prevention Week has been observed on the second Sunday in October. This year, Fire Prevention Week runs from Oct. 8-14. Fire Prevention Week is the longest running public health and safety observance on record, according to the National Archives and Records Administration’s Library Information Center.
