During the winter and spring months, Lakeside hosts a handful of events and activities across the grounds, even though most of the shops, restaurants and businesses have closed until the summer.
From January-May, Lakeside invites friends and neighbors to gather for Monthly Community Potlucks. The gatherings are great for reconnecting with other year-round community members and share favorite, family recipes.
The potlucks are held from 12-1:30 p.m. every Third Thursday of the month in Wesley Lodge, unless otherwise noted.
The main dish will be provided by Otterbein North Shore. Guests are invited to bring a side dish or dessert to share.
Invite a friend or neighbor and reconnect with other year-round Lakesiders. There are no admission or parking fees for the Community Potlucks.
Purchasing a Daily, Saturday or Season Chautauqua Pass includes admission into Lakeside Chautauqua and all shows in Hoover Auditorium, plus additional benefits. A separate "ticket" is not necessary to attend a Hoover show. As always, children age 12 and under and guests over age 90 are always free. Parking is an additional charge. Chautauqua Passes and Auto Passes may be purchased online at tickets.lakesideohio.com or upon entering the gates of Lakeside. Please allow two weeks for online processing.
