Holiday faire returns to historic site

The Valhalla Grand Hall will be decorated in a festive holiday mode for the 18th annual Holiday Faire this weekend.

Twenty-five local vendors and artists will offer a varied assortment of handmade and special items for purchase, according to Valhalla at Lake Tahoe’s website.

Santa Claus, local school choirs and other musical groups will also perform at the event.

Raffle tickets for items donated by vendors will be available for purchase, as well as hot mulled wine, hot cider, water, sodas and cookies, according to the site.

The event runs from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The Valhalla Grand Hall was built in 1923 and has wood floors, an open wood beam ceiling, a balcony of lodge pole construction and a 20-foot high stone fireplace.

The Tallac Historic Site, where the Grand Hall is located, sits off California State Route 89 two miles west of its intersection with U.S. Highway 50, just past Camp Richardson. Turn right on the street with the sign “Valhalla.”

Due to limited parking people are encouraged to carpool, ride bikes or walk to the event.
