2019 Admission & Parking Fees

Posted on December 10, 2018

Each November, the Board’s Finance Committee begins the budget review process for the upcoming year and determines the sources of revenue that will be needed to support our grounds, facilities and our signature Chautauqua program. With so much to look forward to this year, including expanded programs, a new restaurant, and new and refreshed programming facilities, there is now more value in a Daily Chautauqua Pass than ever before.

The work of the Finance Committee was presented to the Lakeside Chautauqua Board of Directors at the November meeting, and the board approved the following for 2019:

  • Daily Chautauqua Passes are $24.50 for adults and $16.25 for youth ages 13-24. As always, kids age 12 & under are always free.
  • The Saturday premium will also apply to Fridays as high-caliber acts are now beginning to perform on both Fridays and Saturdays. For 2019, a Friday and Saturday Chautauqua Pass purchased on that day will cost $30 for adults. There is no premium pricing for youth passes. Please remember that guests can bypass this increase by purchasing daily passes in advance or buying a multi-day pass.
  • As programming and recreational facilities will be in full operation at the beginning and end of the summer, the Reduced Rate Daily Chautauqua Pass will now only be offered on May 27 (Memorial Day), Aug. 25-30 (Week 11) and Sept. 2 (Labor Day). For 2019, a Reduced Rate Daily Chautauqua Pass will cost $16 for adults and $10 for youth ages 13-24.
  • Season Chautauqua Passes continue to offer the most value for those wishing to enjoy Lakeside frequently during the summer. For 2019, a Season Chautauqua Pass will cost $770 ($805 on/after June 1) for adults and $440 for youth ages 13-24.
  • As announced in 2018, Lakeside will no longer sell Coupon Books. However, in order to provide the same value for our loyal Season Pass holders, we will offer the ability to purchase up to $750 in Gift Cards at a 25% discount. For example, a Season Pass holder who wishes to purchase $100 in Gift Cards will be able to do so by only paying $75. A Season Pass holder who wishes to purchase $750 in Gift Cards will be able to do so by only paying $562.50.

The Finance Committee will continue working on the budget throughout the winter, with the budget ultimately being approved by the Board at its February meeting. Lakeside's 2019-2020 fiscal year will begin April 1.
