Tahoe Heritage Foundation’s annual Great Gatsby Festival returns for its 33rd year on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 12-13. Featuring vintage car shows, games and more, this family-friendly event takes guests back to the Rip Roaring ‘20s.

The Great Gatsby Festival is held at the Tallac Historic Site, where the Pope and Baldwin Estates will be home to a mix of 1920s-themed activities and music. Make the most of the two-day party by showing up in period clothing — if you don’t have any, on-site vendors will help you round out your costume.

But that’s not all: The Great Gatsby Festival also offers guided tours, historical talks, a silent auction, raffle and both food and drinks. Entry is free; food and merchandise is available for purchase.

Attendees also have the opportunity to purchase this year’s unique Great Gatsby Festival poster.

The Great Gatsby Festival is open Saturday, Aug. 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, Aug. 13, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Unlike previous years, the Gatsby Tea and Fashion Show will not be offered at the 2017 event.

Tallac Historic Site is located at 1 Heritage Way. Overflow parking is available at Taylor Creek Visitor Center and the Sno-Park. A shuttle will transport guests to and from the festival venue.
