Chautauqua 2020: Raising Their Voices

What is Chautauqua?

Inspired by an education movement that began in 1874 near the Chautauqua Lake area of southwestern New York State, Chautauqua (shuh-taw-kwa) is a FREE living history performance series each July. Join your fellow Marylanders at this year’s event, and meet and talk with celebrated figures from our nation’s past.
