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.

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!
