The Valhalla Arts, Music and Theatre Festival has announced that Lori Cramer, a 25-year local and long-time South Shore business owner, has been named interim executive director for the Tahoe Tallac Association.

Cramer replaces Steve Farnsley who left the nonprofit in March.

“We have tremendous community support for the cultural art programs and one of my top goals is to reach out to our community and area visitors to be able to experience the unique history and diverse cultural art programs we offer,” Cramer said.

The Tahoe Tallac Association was formed in 1979 as a nonprofit organization with the goal of assisting the Forest Service in restoring the three estates on the Tallac Historic Site, developing the site as a historic center, and sponsoring/producing the Valhalla Arts and Music Festival held annually on the Heller Estate of the Tallac Historic Site.

With a bachelor’s degree in communications and public relations from California State University, Sacramento, an entrepreneurial spirit, years of experience in the tour and travel market, ski industry and destination event planning, Cramer brings a strong expertise and perspective to her new role as interim executive director.

Cramer will lead the association through the summer and early fall when there will be an official executive director search.

Cramer has served as a panelist speaker at The Association of Bridal Consultants and Association for Wedding Professionals International and was named Wedding Professional of the Year for the South Lake Tahoe area in 2008. She served on the South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce from 2000 to 2005 and was president of both the Weddings of the West and The South Lake Tahoe Wedding and Honeymoon Associations. Prior to accepting her new interim position, Cramer was on the Tahoe Tallac Association board for five years.

The annual Lake Tahoe Valhalla Arts, Music, and Theatre Festival will run from April 29 through Sept. 30 at the Tahoe Tallac Historic Site, 1 Valhalla Road, Highway 89. For the full schedule, call (530) 541-4975 or visit http://www.valhallatahoe.com Ticket prices vary and some events are free.
