The Chautauqua Institution is a not-for-profit, 750-acre community on Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York State, where approximately 7,500 persons are in residence on any day during a nine-week season, and a total of over 100,000 attend scheduled public events.
Chautauqua is dedicated to the exploration of the best in human values and the enrichment of life through a program that explores the important religious, social and political issues of our times; stimulates provocative, thoughtful involvement of individuals and families in creative response to such issues; and promotes excellence and creativity in the appreciation, performance and teaching of the arts.

You will need to purchase a gate pass and parking pass. Most programming is included in the gate pass, but some requires additional ticketing. Sundays are free.
If you turn right out of the Institute, you will be driving towards Mayville. About 5 minutes down the road is the Lighthouse which offers very basic groceries. Five minutes further down the road is Tops, the main grocery store in Mayville. If you turn left out of the institute and drive about 30 minutes, you'll find Wegmans or Walmart in Lakewood.
The Institute and surrounding area offers a wide variety of dining options.
