A ten-day - two-weekend festival of non-stop live history and fun for the whole family. A different show outdoors each night and more indoors during the day. Five different shows performed by nationally acclaimed historical interpreters. And the audience is always a part of the show. Greater Greenville SC, Spartanburg SC and Asheville NC. All shows are FREE! (Nominal charge $5 for Asheville shows.)
Five courageous leaders tell their stories in their own words. 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.
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.
