Due to the effects of COVID-19, Lakeside Chautauqua's summer programming season will not be the same this year. It will look different. It will feel different. It will not be as big or as grand. It will not be business as usual. However, despite what we do know, it has not diminished our commitment to creating a season for you and your family.

Similarly, operation of our gates and the fees charged for admission and parking will also not be business as usual and have been adjusted for the summer. The Lakeside gates will be in operation from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day (excluding Monday, Aug. 31 through Thursday, Sept. 3, which will be free admission and parking). A Daily or Season Chautauqua Pass and Auto Pass will be required to enter Lakeside during the gated season. As always, admission for children age 12 & under and guests over the age of 90 is free.

View revised gate hours, will call and barcode information for this summer. Season Chautauqua Passes can be ordered and picked up at the Hoover Ticket Office, located at 115 Third St.
