Chautauqua is historical tourism at its finest. It's your chance to time travel to another era and meet some of history's most illustrious characters. Historical enactments include a monologue "in character" and an opportunity to pose questions to both the visiting luminary and the scholar/presenter. Daytime workshops and lectures give further glimpses of the social, cultural and political nuances of the era.

The theme for 2018 is "The Modern Age: Moving Forward after World War I." Entertainment begins at 6:30 pm with the scholar presentation at 7:30 pm.
