Founded by Nevada Humanities in Reno in 1992, Nevada Humanities Chautauqua is one of the longest running Chautauqua festivals in the country. The multi-day celebration features workshops, roundtable discussions, and other daytime events hosted by community partners throughout Northern Nevada, as well as the evening theatrical performances. More information about daytime programs will be available closer to the event. Please visitnevadahumanities.org for details and program updates.

Chautauqua is a living history program in which scholar/performers, in costume and in character, bring historical figures to life. Educational and entertaining, Chautauqua programs provide dramatic insights into the people and events that have shaped our nation, and also provide a historical lens for looking at contemporary issues.
