History comes alive this summer as Ohio Chautauqua returns to Geauga County June 6 – 10, with big-tent performances each evening in Burton’s Century Village. Live music starts at 6:30 p.m., actor performances at 7:30 p.m. These shows are free and open to all ages.
Building on the 19th-century tradition established on the shores of New York’s Chautauqua Lake, Ohio Chautauqua is a five-day event that combines living history performances, music, education, and audience participation into a one-of-a-kind cultural event the entire community will enjoy. This season’s theme is “The Natural World” with historical characters who spent their lives immersed in nature, using it as a source of creativity, discovery and spiritualism.
Gather under the tent with neighbors and friends for an evening of live music, living history, and engagement.
