Corporate Sponsors

Corporate sponsors provide a higher level of financial support that enables Greenville Chautauqua to continue to be a premier provider of cultural engagement in the Upstate/Western NC region with multi-generational, accessible, and sustainable community experiences and critical thought through the dramatic arts, dialogue, and discussion. And to offer almost all our events free of charge.

In 2016-2017 we produced 62 events for an audience of 13,210. We perform at schools like Carolina HS, Tanglewood Middle, and Legacy Charter. We perform at community organizations like senior centers, history clubs, libraries, and museums. Our major event of the year is the June Chautauqua Festival. Nationally acclaimed historical interpreters perform for 30 shows and events in Greater Greenville, Spartanburg and Asheville. Ten straight days, two full weekends of non-stop live history and fun for the whole family. Shows morning, noon and night.
