Chautauqua History Alive Festival: It's Revolutionary

Get ready to laugh, cry and flat out have a great time at this ten-day – two-weekend festival of non-stop live history and fun for the whole family.
30 shows performed in costume by nationally acclaimed historical interpreters. And all the shows are FREE.

Meet revolutionary people – hear their stories – ask them how their world changed.
•       Duel wits with ALEXANDER HAMILTON
•       Debate democracy with ANDREW JACKSON
•       Survive JFK’s assassination with JACKIE KENNEDY
•       Struggle for human rights with MALCOLM X
•       And like HAMILTON’S WOMEN – be a part of the story.

There’s nothing like the experience outdoors under the Chautauqua tent or in a beautiful park on a summer evening. But if you like your Chautauqua experience indoors in air-conditioned comfort, they have that, too.

You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered. Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because it’s not just history – it’s personal.

All Shows are Free. Many shows at Greenville Technical College. Others at Falls Park, The Kroc Center, Phillis Wheatley Center, Upcountry History Museum, Centre Stage, the Younts Center (Fountain inn), Trailblazer Park (Travelers Rest), and Pelzer Auditorium.
