In order to provide quality entertainment, speakers, recreational activities and maintenance to our grounds and facilities, Lakeside requires all guests and residents to purchase a daily or seasonal Chautauqua Pass and Auto Pass to enter from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend (May 28 - Sept. 6, 2021). Kids age 12 & under and guests 90 & older are always free! Complimentary Shopping and Dining passes are available to guests for a 90-minute window. We advise guests who are visiting Lakeside to shop and dine to park outside the Fifth Street Gate and utilize our convenient shuttle service for transportation to avoid the auto pass fee.
