In order to provide quality entertainment, speakers, recreational activities and maintenance to our grounds and facilities, Lakeside Chautauqua requires all guests and residents to purchase a Chautauqua Pass and Auto Pass to enter the grounds during Memorial Day weekend and the summer programming season. Kids age 12 & under and guests 90 & older are always free!


What is a Chautauqua Pass?

A Chautauqua Pass entitles guests and residents to participate in a wide range of programs, including spiritual services, educational lectures, Hoover Auditorium concerts, cultural arts events and specific recreational activities. Learn more about the benefits of your Chautauqua Pass.

There are different Chautauqua Passes to choose from, depending on how long your family is visiting Lakeside. Visit the Admission & Parking Fees page for 2018 rates. 

Please note: Chautauqua Pass revenue covers only a fraction of the cost of presenting Lakeside’s quality Chautauqua program each summer. Lakeside's programming is possible only through the philanthropic support of its patrons, and we thank you for your continued support. To learn more about how to support Lakeside or to make a donation, visit the Giving page.


How do I purchase a Chautauqua Pass and Auto Pass?

For your convenience, you may purchase a Chautauqua Pass and Auto Pass online, please allow a minimum of two weeks for processing. Online purchasing is available after April 1. You may also purchase a Chautauqua Pass and Auto Pass at the gate upon entering the grounds or complete and return the 2018 Chautauqua Pass & Auto Pass Order Form by mail.
