Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear famous historical figures talk about their experiences and accomplishments . . . in real life? Join Maryland Humanities at our annual Chautauqua and meet celebrated figures from our nation’s past, then talk with them about their lives, ideas, and impact.
Since 1995, when Maryland’s Chautauqua began at Garrett College, this summer event has spread to six locations, providing free programs for communities in every region of the state. Chautauqua combines scholarship and performance to present an interactive program that engages thousands of Marylanders in thoughtful dialogue.
Join us in July 2019 for a very special Chautauqua “Then and Now” festival to be held in Mountain Lake Park, MD, the original home of Chautauqua in Maryland.
The 25th annual Chautauqua living history series will take place over three days and will include full days of activities and special presentations, Each evening, the activities will conclude with interactive presentations from Maryland Humanities Chautauqua 2019, “Making Waves.”
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet celebrated figures from our nation’s and our region’s past, then talk with them about their lives, ideas and impacts.
