History Alive Festival June 15 – 24, 2018
COURAGE – Winston Churchill, Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Alice Paul and Francis Marion
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 triumphed.
- “Out-Fox” the British with FRANCIS MARION, the elusive Swamp Fox
- Join HARRIET TUBMAN on the Combahee River Raid to free the slaves
- Defy danger on the battlefield with humanitarian CLARA BARTON
- Go to jail with ALICE PAUL for a woman’s right to vote
- Stand with WINSTON CHURCHILL– and “never, never, never give up!”
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.
