Activities & Forms

We are working on plans to move some events online and are discussing postponement of some other elements of Chautauqua. Even though our festival in the park won’t be happening this June, we remain dedicated to our common cause.

  • Please click the associated links for rules and registration information. 

  • Registration for daily workshops starts June 15 at the Wythe Arts Council office in the Haller House, located at 195 W Washington Street right behind the park.

  • The office will be open from 10 to 5:30 M-F that week.

  • Fees, if required, are paid at registration. The following week, during the Festival, registrations will be taken at the Chautauqua office located in the gazebo near the park entrance.

  • Register early since many of the events fill up fast.
