Enid Chautauqua: The Modern Age: Moving Forward from World War I
Jun 12, 2018 to Jun 16, 2018
507 S 4th St
Come to Chautauqua in the Park held at Enid's Humphrey Heritage Village, to dig deep into history and have fun doing it. Each evening, this fun and fascinating event features a different scholar who gives a presentation in character followed by a Q&A session with the audience, first in character then as a scholar. The 2018 characters are General “Black Jack” Pershing, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Acee Blue Eagle, Josephine Baker and Ernest Hemingway.
During the day, there are two workshops, each led by a different scholar about a topic pertaining to either his character or some facet of the historical time frame of his character. Local musicians, as well as the winner of the student Chautauquan contest, usually entertain the audience briefly before each evening's performance. A variety of snacks will be available for purchase. Make an evening of it and enjoy the ambiance of a summer night under the tent while learning about a fascinating time in history.
