Tahoe Tallac Association
The Tahoe Tallac Association (TTA), better known as Valhalla, is a community-based nonprofit organization that puts on local festivals, concerts, performances and art exhibitions in the Valhalla/Camp Richardson area. Formed in 1979, the TTA’s original goal was to partner with the Forest Service and help facilitate the restoration efforts of the three estates in the Tallac Historical area.
Over the years, the TTA’s responsibilities have morphed into being the chief producer and sponsor of the Valhalla Arts and Music Festival.

As the TTA is a nonprofit, it uses all proceeds from these exhibitions and events to raise money for community projects, as well as the continued restoration of the grounds at Valhalla…
