Welcome to Lakeside!

For more than 145 years, Lakeside Chautauqua has welcomed families to the Lake Erie shore to take part in a Chautauqua experience dedicated to nurturing mind, body and spirit. Lakeside Chautauqua is a historic community in northwest Ohio that offers an abundance of spiritual opportunities, educational lectures, cultural arts performances and recreational activities year-round for both families and groups of all sizes. We strive to enrich the quality of life for all people through programing focused on the four Chautauqua pillars. Learn more about the Chautauqua experience, our history, mission, and vision here.

From Memorial Day to Labor Day Lakeside is a gated community with admission fees although a variety of complimentary passes are available for shopping, dining and worship opportunities.

From September to May enjoy free entry to the Lakeside grounds!

Plan your visit today. We can't wait to see you!
