KINGS BEACH, Calif. — After 40 years of operating in the area as Arts For The Schools, the nonprofit is now shifting to a different name — Fox Cultural Hall.

The Fox Cultural Hall, located at 8707 North Lake Boulevard in Kings Beach, reopened in March after four years of work and will now provide performance and arts space to the area’s schools and communities. The hall will be home to an array of programming such as visual arts, performing arts, live performances, classes, special events, and more.

“Operating under our new name Fox Cultural Hall, we have an expanded mission as arts presenter, educator, engager, and community partner; reflecting our long-standing dream to build a home for the arts,” said the nonprofit in a news release. “From the birth of our organization in 1984, beginning as the sole performing arts presenter in the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee region, we have worked tirelessly to promote the arts in North Lake Tahoe.”

After reopening last winter, Fox Cultural Hall is now ramping up with end to summer and fall programming, including live performances, classes, clubs and more. The 325-person capacity space is also available to rent.

This month the hall will be hosting Music Together classes on Fridays. The program is geared toward young children and their parents. There is also a Spanish immersion music class on Monday’s as well as an LGBTQ+ Art Club every other Tuesday. A Mexican heritage festival will be held Saturday, Sept. 16. The Reminders are slated to perform at the hall on Friday, Sept. 22, and line dancing closes out the month on Friday, Sept. 29.
