Over the course of nine weeks, more than 100,000 visitors will stay at Chautauqua and participate in programs, classes and community events for all ages—all within the beautiful setting of a historic lakeside village.
The Chautauqua experience is based around one’s engagement in five program areas: arts, education, religion, recreation, and youth. While people visit Chautauqua Institution for all different lengths of stay—the most popular length of stay on the grounds is one week.
To experience all that Chautauqua Institution has to offer in one day — including daily lectures, concerts, the beautiful grounds, two art galleries and so much more — you’ll need a gate pass for the duration of your stay and to park your car in our Main Lot.
