Established in 1898, the Colorado Chautauqua was not developed with automobile use in mind and has very limited parking space available within the National Historic Landmark boundary. Riding the free HOP 2 Chautauqua (available on concert nights), carpooling and bicycling to Chautauqua is strongly encouraged. The most ample supply of parking for concert goers is available on a first-come, first-served basis along the south side of Baseline Road. From June – August, additional parking is permitted on the north side of Baseline Road from 6:30 PM – 11:00 PM.
Free HOP 2 Chautauqua Shuttle
Save on gas and parking hassles and ride the free HOP 2 Chautauqua to the Chautauqua Summer Series and Colorado Music Festival concerts.
Available on Auditorium concert nights only, the free transit service runs from approximately 90 minutes prior to showtime, arriving approximately every 15-20 minutes at designated stops. At the conclusion of each concert, buses will be staged on the east side of the Chautauqua Auditorium ready to return passengers to their destinations. Look for the bus icon on our online event calendar and take the ultimate carpool this summer.
