History Alive Festival (June 15 – 24)

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 triumphed.

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.
