Chautauqua Green

Free to the public

Gather your friends and family and join us on the Chautauqua Green for our 120th birthday! This family-friendly celebration features two sets of Americana music by one of the premier community bands in the state, Boulder Concert Band. Consisting of over 70 volunteer musicians, the band’s performance will feature a wide variety of traditional patriotic music including John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever,” starring any kid conductor willing to give it a try.

Bring your appetite and let the staff of the Chautauqua Dining Hall take care of the rest. Serving delicious BBQ-style cuisine on the stone patio and baked goods, grab-n-go snacks and $1.20 single-scoop ice cream in the General Store, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Feeling thirsty? Stop by the Chautauqua Dining Hall for happy hour prices on beer and wine.
