The Chautauqua Festival is an eight day family oriented arts and music festival presented each year starting on the third Saturday of June in Wytheville, Virginia. In its 30th year, it has become an event anticipated all year long by a growing throng of fans locally and across the region.
Join us this summer in Elizabeth Brown Park in Downtown Wytheville for the fun, the entertainment, the drama, the food, and all you can imagine.

The Festival of Trees

You are invited to enter your beautifully decorated Christmas trees and/or display (table setting, Christmas scene, etc). The contest is open to individuals, businesses, and organizations.

Trivia Night !!!!

Are you a font of useless information? Do you seem to be the only one that knows the significance of insignificant information? Well, bring yourself and your like minded friends and join us on the 1st and 3rd Thursday each month at the Wohlfahrt Haus' Matterhorn Lounge for some fun and comradery to see what team can claim the Trivia Title. Plus, clues will be provided for extra prizes. Thank you for supporting our efforts to fund Chautauqua with your participation in and donations to Wythe Arts Council's Trivia Night. Good Luck!

Another Chautauqua Festival in the books

Nothing left now, but to pack away the memories, and package up the smiles and giggles for next year. Many thanks to all of our patrons and sponsors for providing the support that makes this happen. Thanks to all of our volunteers and performers that provide the energy and the actions that truly make this a festive occasion. And many thanks, too, to the contest participants and Festival goers that make all this worthwhile.

Little did we know 31 years ago that our little Festival in the Park would grow to be such an enjoyment to us and to all around us. Set your watch for June 18 thru 25, 2016 when we get to do it all again!
