Things To Do

Enjoy the 2019 summer season Memorial Day weekend to Mid-September at the Pope-Baldwin Estates, Tallac Historic Site! We invite you to experience our unforgettable family friendly tours, programs and special events. Although the buildings are closed and shuttered for the winter, you can still enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the fall and winter seasons at the site by walking, biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Spring brings a beautiful array of flowers in the extensive gardens, our many volunteers begin to prepare the grounds, Tallac Museum, Gift Shop and the many building and antique vehicle exhibits for over 250,000 visitors! This summer, we celebrate the 35th Annual Gatsby 2-Day Festival and Afternoon Tea with Vintage Fashion Show held the 2nd weekend in August! New in 2018 and in our lineup for 2019 is our living-history program Heritage Days; presented by 1920s costumed volunteers weekly in July and August where playing croquet, nature crafts and frolicking at the beach were typical past times of the elite families that summered at Lake Tahoe. Fall brings a new community program for halloween and finally, our annual Winter Fundraiser Gift Shop mid-November for the holidays. 

We also host Author talks and book signings, Member-only events and Group Tours. Why not join expert demonstrations at our Blacksmith Shop, Artist in residence, volunteers rug-hooking, calligraphy and basket-weaving? There are many reasons to bring your family more than once to the Tallac Historic Site! So whether you live here at the lake, are on vacation and out exploring, or just looking for a place to relax and enjoy the shoreline, this is the perfect place to make memories with family and friends. See the calendar below to learn more about what’s happening during your next visit.
