Annual Great Gatsby Festival
August 10, 2014 | Tallac Historic Site

The Gatsby Festival is a two-day event at the Tallac Historic Site held each year the second weekend in August.  Throughout the weekend a variety of activities take place on the Pope and Baldwin Estates­—vintage car shows, wandering musicians and jugglers, a raffle, special sales of period appropriate items and the sale of the annual Gatsby poster.  Food and Pope House Tours are plentiful.  Children love face painting and lively music.

The calendar may say it's Halloween, but it looks like Mother Nature is planning to deliver South Lake Tahoe some snow for an early Christmas gift! If you're planning on coming up for the weekend, check out the forecast and our quick winter driving tips.
