Description:
Chautauqua

6:30PM - POTLUCK
7:30PM - PERFORMANCES

First popularized in the 19th and 20th centuries, the Chautauqua brought entertainment and culture for the whole community with speakers, teachers, musicians, entertainers and specialists of the day. The Chautauqua is hailed as a sharing of entertainment and intellectual knowledge – Teddy Roosevelt claimed it was “the most American thing in America ”. Today the tradition continues with a variety of writers, musicians and special topic speakers taking center stage at the EHAHC.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
The Chautauqua is open to all seeking entertainment, intellectual or spiritual growth and local culture. Each participant performs 1-2 songs or a 5-minute reading. Nightly performances highlight 10 reserved spots with two swing spots available for impromptu appearances. Those wishing to be on stage are encouraged to contact Toni James to make reservations at (406) 843-5454 or email ranksmerc@yahoo.com
