SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, CA (KOLO) - Sen. Dianne Feinstein, (D) California, has announced details for the 23rd annual Lake Tahoe Summit.

The gathering will be held August 20, 2019 at Valhalla Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe.

The event is free and open to the public, but you must register at the Lake Tahoe Fund's website.

The first Lake Tahoe Summit was held in 1997 when President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore held a presidential forum at Lake Tahoe.
