Bishop Hill Chautauqua

The theme of this year’s Bishop Hill Chautauqua is Exploring Boundaries.  The event is located in the Village Park; this small town tradition is a free family-oriented event.

What is a Chautauqua anyway?  President Teddy Roosevelt once called the Chautauqua “the most uniquely American thing in America.” Pronounced shuh-TAW-kwuh, this traditional form of entertainment is an exploration of American life and liberty.  Hear the true tales of what shaped us as a nation from the people who lived it. Humor and a deeply personal perspective mean that history has never been this much fun!
