With a 2017 Chautauqua theme of ‘History, Health & The Arts’, the overall message of this year’s event is to celebrate the many individuals who walked and arrived by train from the United States to build uniquely designed communities, establish much-needed irrigation and create new enterprises where only prairie existed. Each community offers a different variety of entertaining and informative speakers, story-tellers, artists, entertainers and delicious cultural food offerings that allow you to experience the feeling of an old-time Chautauqua while discovering the history and welcoming character of the Mormon Trail.

There are also numerous interactive experiences for people of all ages to enjoy from board branding to rope making to acting, and guided tours in horse drawn wagons to interpretive walks along the hand-dug canal to campfire singalongs.
