Lake Tahoe Chautauqua

According to Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary, Chautauqua is an institution that flourished in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, providing popular education combined with entertainment in the form of lectures, concerts, and plays and often presented outdoors or in a tent. In addition, no less than Theodore Roosevelt himself described it as "the most American thing in America."

In Lake Tahoe , Chautauqua involves actors and audiences dressed in period costumes, with questions fired to the actor from whence they will respond according to their character and the era in which that character lived. The audience is given the chance to meet each scholar after the show to ask further queries about the portrayed character. It is enjoyed by people of all ages and has been celebrated for over 125 years now. The Lake Tahoe Chautauqua is largely known as a family entertainment and an educational experience at the same time for over 125 years now.
