More than history. More than a performance. More than a story.

Meet the Chautauqua History Alive Festival performers off-stage. One performer and their Historical Character will be featured each morning. Often the other performers and Chautauqua staff join in the fun. In an intimate setting over free coffee, you can discuss their character, themselves or “whatever.”

Admission to the event is Free. When the event is over, the Upcountry History Museum will be open. If you are not already a Museum member, admission to the Museum is $8 adults, $7 seniors and $6 for children.
