History Comes Alive Festival 2021

The History Comes Alive Festival, traditionally held in June, has  been rescheduled to September 3 – 12 due to the Covid-19 crisis. It will be a completely out-door festival with appropriate social distancing precautions. The Schedule of performances and locations will be posted soon.

Starring: Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Hedy Lamarr and Rosa Parks

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.

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

Meet American game-changers – hear their stories – ask them how they re-invented their world.

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.
