Chautauqua History Comes Alive Festival - Reinventing America

The Upcountry

The Upcountry

Meet Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Hedy Lamarr and Rosa Parks as we "Reinvent America." 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. 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.
