Big Top Chautauqua
Culture Under Canvas. An intimate 1,000-seat, all-canvas, state-of-the-art tent theater, producing and presenting a fifty-plus night summer season of concerts & plays. Our summer schedule includes performances by renowned national, regional and touring musicians like Willie Nelson, Brandi Carlile, Vince Gill, Hot Rize, and many more! On summer nights the tent sidewalls are lifted and people sit outside on the lawn and even up on the hillside. The sound is superb and on clear nights you can see the Milky Way and sometimes even the Northern Lights! Food, bar and shopping.
Hours of Operation
Show season is June-September at the tent and year-round touring by the Blue Canvas Orchestra.
