Lakeside's programming is possible only through the philanthropic support of its patrons. Chautauqua Pass revenue covers only a fraction of the cost of presenting programs each summer. During Memorial Day weekend and the summer programming season, the value of a Chautauqua Pass provides admission to the grounds and the following Lakeside activities:
