The Colorado Chautauqua is celebrating its 125th anniversary as a healing oasis for the local community and a hub of activity that welcomes over a million visitors each year.

You are invited to join the huge celebration on Saturday, July 8, with something for everyone  in the family. 

Enjoy five bands, a beer garden, history tours, and countless kids activities—and it’s all free.

An artisan market offers goods from local vendors ranging from home and decor items to soap, blooms, leather goods, jewelry and more. A ticketed concert with Los Lobos and Ozomatli will close out the day.

The Daily Camera is proud to sponsor the Colorado Chautauqua and its mission of lifelong learning, love of nature, voluntary simplicity and music, oration and the arts.

I encourage you to come out and enjoy this day of community celebration.
