Following in the footsteps of a rich American tradition, musicians, dancers, poets, jugglers, magicians, philosophers and more tour the region sharing their unique forms of entertainment. Led by the world famous Flying Karamozov Brothers juggling troupe; this is a show not to be missed. The focus of this years tour is connecting communities to State Parks.

The Chautauqua is rolling into Twisp on June 22nd & 23rd, bringing their “highly organized, well traveled, marvelously skilled and benign madhouse. Be careful, they’re contagious”.
