Five nights each June, as the crickets chatter and the wind blows the summer heat into the Arkansas, Tulsa celebrates its annual Chautauqua. Like apparitions from the past, figures emerge from history, come to the Chautauqua tent, settle upon the Chautauqua stage and talk. Re-enacted by humanities scholars, Chautauqua characters carry us into the very heart of history. We experience their joys and sorrows, envision their lives and times, hear the voices of the past.

Enhance Chautauqua with a picnic! Bring a blanket and enjoy the lawn and gardens. Wine and beer are permitted.
