The Boathouse Theater is a turn-of-the-century structure now rehabilitated to a remarkable performing arts space. Valhalla Grand Hall is a registered historic site and has one of the grandest stone fireplaces in the West. Both offer a magnificent backdrop of Lake Tahoe – the perfect location for a picnic on the lawn before a show.

The Tahoe Tallac Association is a nonprofit association committed to promoting Lake Tahoe’s heritage, history and cultural resources. The Summer Festival raises funds to maintain the ground and buildings and provides an outlet for education, entertainment and interactive experiences on-site.
