History Alive Festival (June 15 – 25)
2018 Festival: COURAGE
Get ready to laugh, cry and flat out have a great time at this ten-day – two-weekend festival of non-stop live history and fun for the whole family.
30 shows performed in costume by nationally acclaimed historical interpreters. And almost all the shows are FREE.
Meet five courageous people – hear their stories – and ask them how they endured.
- Fight the British with Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox
- Join Harriet Tubman on the Combahee River Raid to free the slaves
- Follow Clara Barton onto the battlefield
- Go to jail for woman’s suffrage with Alice Paul
- Stand with Winston Churchill – and never surrender
There’s nothing like the experience outdoors under the Chautauqua tent or in a beautiful park on a summer evening. But if you like your Chautauqua experience indoors in air-conditioned comfort, we have that, too.
You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered. Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because it’s not just history – it’s personal.
