Brookside Park Band Shell
West Main St. and Brookside Dr.
Presented By: Ashland University
ASHLAND CHAUTAUQUA programs are fun for the entire family! The community meets to learn from and talk with historical figures from our country's past. In addition to major Chautauqua performances on the grand Band Shell stage, each presenter makes special appearances and presents daytime programs for youth and adults. The theme of the tenth annual ASHLAND CHAUTAUQUA is American Dreams: Progress in Business and Industry, and will take place June 23 - 27 at the Myers Memorial Band Shell beginning at 7 pm. This year's program will feature portrayals of important American entrepreneurs: Julia Child, Walt Disney, Juana Briones, and Ben Franklin. The program's fifth component will be a local history presentation written and directed by our own Deleasa Randall-Griffiths.
ASHLAND CHAUTAUQUA main performances are held at the Myers Memorial Band Shell, located in Brookside Park near the intersection of West Main Street and Brookside Drive.
In the event of inclement weather, performances will be held in the auditorium of Ashland Senior High School, located at 1440 King Road.
