After much anticipation and excitement new developments are coming to downtown Truckee. With such a vibrant and active community it is exciting to hear that Truckee will soon be expanding the downtown area. Plans for the Railyard Development include building a movie and performing arts theater, new retail and office space, a brew and pub restaurant, and mixed income housing.

With all these changes coming together new opportunities blossom for activities for couples headed up to Truckee for their wedding weekend. Fifty Fifty, a brewery currently located in downtown Truckee, will be opening a new location with an event space.

This new space will provide a perfect place to host a dinner rehearsal or welcome party in the heart of Truckee.
