June History Comes Alive Festival 2019

Chautauqua History Comes Alive programs have been presented by the Greenville Chautauqua since 1999. We are busily working on programing for the 2020 season which will be announced soon and is scheduled for June 12 – 21, 2020. In the meantime, take a look at what was recently presented to an audience of 10,597!

Starring: Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Jackson, Malcolm X, Jackie Kennedy and Hamilton’s Women

Get ready to laugh, cry and flat out have a great time at this ten-day – two-weekend festival of non-stop live history and fun for the whole family.

36 shows performed in costume by nationally acclaimed historical interpreters. And almost all the shows are FREE.

Meet revolutionary people – hear their stories – ask them how their world changed.

There’s nothing like the experience outdoors under the Chautauqua tent or in a beautiful park on a summer evening. But if you like your Chautauqua experience indoors in air-conditioned comfort, we have that, too.

There will be great story-telling, lots to laugh about, and deep secrets revealed. You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered. Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because it’s not just history – it’s personal.
