The Spartanburg County Public Libraries have been a Presenting Partner of Greenville Chautauqua since 2011. When covid hit in 2020 and live programming was canceled, Spartanburg proposed partnering to offer virtual online programming until we could return to the live stage. With their assistance we quickly began to produce virtual History Comes Alive shows.

Spartanburg returned to live performances in June 2023 with all five Festival characters performing an afternoon and an evening show. ASL translation was offered for each characters’ afternoon performance.
