Lakeside Christmas Connections

 Saturday, December 5, 2020  
Repeats

The heart of Lakeside is all about connection - with family, with friends, and with our community both locally and globally. It's about great programming, exploring new ideas, and honoring tradition in a welcoming and inclusive environment. This winter, Lakeside has responded to the challenges presented by world events by curating programming designed to connect Lakesiders with one another in unique and meaningful ways.

The month of December is full of virtual opportunities to connect and explore with other Lakesiders in a series of interactive programs designed to appeal to a variety of ages.

Lakeside Chautauqua is pleased to offer the Christmas Connections events free of charge as a gift to our community.
