This is a past event.

Prairieland Chautauqua

On Aug. 21, 1912, Nichols Park's first Chautauqua took place. The big tent went up, music played, speeches and lectures took place on a wooden stage. For a whole week, hundreds of people came to see and experience the show while camping on the grounds. This is a free event that is open to everyone, with family-oriented entertainment for all ages. Look into the history of the Jacksonville Chautauqua and Nichols Park.
