Chautauqua Trail Annual Meeting & Chautauqua Experience

"Chautauqua" is an educational and cultural movement that built communities and supported individuals in the development of their full potential spiritually, intellectually, culturally and physically. The concept began in the late 19th century and spread throughout rural North America as hundreds of Chautauqua communities were established. However, by the mid-1920s, the movement began to recede due to the rise of the automobile, radio and access to education. Only a handful of these communities survived the decline.

Today, there are several Chautauqua communities across North America, and the demand for authentic, cultural experiences and continued learning opportunities is on the rise. The Chautauqua Trail, a group of organizations and individuals committed to promoting the Chautauqua concept, is one of the driving forces behind this renaissance.
