Our Programs

Muskoka Chautauqua is pleased to offer a wide range of arts, culture and heritage programming, designed to inspire and engage.

The roots of the Chautauqua movement lie in several concepts, including elements of the Lyceum movement, which attempted to raise the level of public education with lectures, readings, and entertainment, all with a goal of life-long learning and self-improvement. Today, Muskoka Chautauqua looks to continue in this tradition by offering residents and visitors to Muskoka access to a wide variety of arts, culture and heritage programming designed to inspire and engage.
