Buncombe Chautauqua was founded in 2000 as a Presenting Partner of Greenville Chautauqua and has consistently produced a Buncombe Chautauqua Festival every year since. A committee of loyal volunteers are responsible for producing these events in Buncombe County, NC.

The first Buncombe Chautauqua June Festivals were held under a tent on the historic Smith-McDowell House lawn. As the audience grew, Buncombe transferred to the AB Tech Ferguson Auditorium. The past year the shows were held at the Warren Wilson College Morris’ Pavilion.

Buncombe Chautauqua is audience-powered.
