Come take a step back in time to the 1920’s at the 25th Annual Great Gatsby Festival in Lake Tahoe. Enjoy the Vintage Faire at the Pope Estate at the Tallac Historic Site (near Camp Richardson on Highway 89). There will be antiques, vintage clothes and accessories, live music, interactive historic house tours, a vintage auto show, multiple vintage vendors, food, ice cream, cotton candy, old time kid’s games, wandering musicians and jugglers, a raffle and sale of the annual Gatsby poster. Past issues of the poster have become collector items; be sure to come early to get yours! Costumed tour guides will also be interpreting the history of the estates. The festival will take place August 14 & 15 from 10-4. The event is staffed by volunteers, many dressed in Gatsby era costumes!
Sunday afternoon of each Gatsby Festival the Tahoe Heritage Foundation holds the annual Gatsby Tea. Volunteers decorate and host tea tables and serve Gatsby era sweets and savories. The highlight of the afternoon is the fashion show of vintage clothing; themes have ranged from “pack for a cruise” to “summer at the Lake” to “wedding trouseau.” Tickets are $35 each or $350 for a table of up to ten guests and are sold through the Tahoe Heritage Foundation office; the event generally sells out early. Call Joyce at (530) 544-7383 for reservations.
