Lakeside Chautauqua offers live concerts and performances throughout the summer in beautiful historic venues such as Hoover Auditorium and across the grounds.

Unfortunately, the operation of large entertainment venues like Hoover Auditorium will not be possible this summer due to COVID-19 restrictions. Though it grieves us tremendously, we are planning to operate this summer without utilizing Hoover Auditorium and are creating a new entertainment lineup outdoors at the Steele Memorial Bandstand, Pavilion, and Hoover Porch to practice safe social distancing.

View our online calendar for our complete summer entertainment series.


Purchasing a Daily, Peak, Friday, 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 free. Parking is an additional fee. Admission and Parking may be purchased online at or upon entering the gates of Lakeside. There are no reserved seats for Hoover shows; seats are on a first-come, first-served basis. Present your Chautauqua Pass upon entering Hoover Auditorium.
