The 32nd annual Great Gatsby Festival comes to the Tallac Historic Site this weekend. The fun begins Saturday, Aug. 13, and continues through Sunday, Aug. 14.

“Join in celebration of the Rip Roaring ‘20s with events including guided tours, vintage automobiles, historical talks, games and activities, food and drink, silent auction and raffle and so much more,” according to the event website.

Various activities take place at both the Pope and Baldwin estates.

Admission is free, but there is a fee for merchandise, including the annual collectible Gatsby poster. Tickets for the Gatsby Tea and Fashion Show, which is held Sunday, Aug. 14, from 2-4 p.m., are $65 each or $520 for a table of eight.

“Step back into the roaring ‘20s to enjoy an afternoon of tea and entertainment. There will be a variety of savory tea sandwiches and tasty sweets, along with 1920s high tea and bootleg champagne,” according to the site.

All proceeds benefit the Tahoe Heritage Foundation. The event is the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

“Proceeds go toward our mission of restoration, interpretation and education at the Tallac Historic Site,” according to the website.

Tickets for the tea are available online at or via phone at 530-544-7383.

The Tallac Historic Site is located at 1 Heritage Way.
