GroupAccount image

Chautauqua lectures have been a part of the fabric of American society for 135 years.  Our morning lecture series focuses on weekly themes that are relevant, timely and important.  The lectures are presented by the leading thinkers and leaders in the world.  Our afternoon Hall of Philosophy lectures are equally important and renowned.

The Chautauqua Institution is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to lifelong learning. Based on the four pillars of Art, Education, Religion and Recreation, Chautauqua’s programs aim to renew the spirit, stimulate the mind, value the arts and promote physical well-being. It has performance venues, hotel, golf, tennis and educational and recreational facilities.


For nine weeks each year, from late June through late August, the Institution offers a rich blend of arts, a variety of programming and recreational activities. Its educational mission is continued during the rest of the year with programs for older adults and other learning opportunities. More information is available at
