Chautauqua Trail Annual Meeting

Lakeside Chautauqua is honored to host the 2023 Chautauqua Trail Annual Meeting, taking place Thursday, Aug. 10-Sunday, Aug. 13. We’re excited to welcome you back to the Lake Erie shore to celebrate Lakeside’s 150th Anniversary. A lot has changed since you were last here in 2012, and we can’t wait to share about the power of the four Chautauqua pillars.

The Chautauqua Trail organization was founded more than 30 years ago at the Chautauqua Institution in New York. The meetings now rotate annually among member organizations, most recently last fall in Lake Wawasee, Indiana. Next year’s meeting will be in Mt. Gretna, Pennsylvania.

Registration

Registration for the Annual Meeting is $150. Please submit a registration for each person attending. Pay upon arrival by check or credit card. If you’d like to pay prior to arrival, checks can be mailed to the Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation, 236 Walnut Avenue, Lakeside, Ohio, 43440. Accommodations are separate. The fee covers the cost of meals, events and the Goodtime Cruise on Saturday. 

Please note: Lakesiders who just want to learn more about the Chautauqua Trail can attend the Friday Business Meeting. At this session, the different Chautauquas report on their organization and activities. Please advise the Advancement Office at (419) 798-4461, ext. 246 if you plan to attend as there is limited seating.


Accommodations

Lakeside Chautauqua has two hotels on the grounds, Hotel Lakeside and the Fountain Inn. If you prefer a homestay option, please contact Gretchen Colon, V.P. of Advancement & Marketing, at gcolon@lakesideohio.com. We have noted a few individuals already in the pre-registration and will be reaching out.


Arrival

Once registration is complete, we will contact the attendees and provide arrival information, directions and logistics. We can’t wait to welcome you to Lakeside.
