 Ashland Chautauqua

Thanks to everyone who attended and supported Ashland Chautauqua 2018. The schedule for Ashland Chautauqua 2019 will be available in late 2018. Until then, we offer the following video as a fond retrospective of Ashland Chautauqua 2018.

In the tradition of the American Chautauqua, the Ashland, Ohio Chautauqua allows audiences to witness history in its most compelling form - first person historical portrayals. Nationally recruited scholar-actors take on the roles of historical figures, appearing in costume and presenting exciting living history performances. Concurrent with these performances, and again in keeping with the Chautauqua tradition, Ashland Chautauqua also provides musical performances with each living history performance and daytime workshops throughout the week of Chautauqua.
