In-person programming delivered to an audience has been canceled. This means that the lectures, religious services, performances, classes, youth programs and other gatherings typically offered in the Amphitheater, Hall of Philosophy and other venues cannot be attended in person this year. Many of these programs will be offered online, providing an alternative to achieve the same or a similar level of learning, joy and exploration for Chautauqua patrons.


Separately, the decision to cancel an on-grounds school experience for the hundreds of students who had planned to attend one of our festival schools this year was made in deep consultation with school faculty and taking into account the needs and desires of students, who were surveyed about their attendance. Chautauqua joins most festival schools in the United States in deciding to take this step in the interest of safety. Plans have been made to offer instruction online in most cases to students.
