The New Old Time Chautauqua

The New Old Time Chautauqua is a community of performers, friends, and families who see live performance as a way to share laughter, friendship and wonder, and to build community through laughter, entertainment and education. This traveling vaudeville show has been bringing cultural enrichment to rural communities in the Pacific Northwest for over thirty years. 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”.

On Friday, the NOTC will undertake their community service project working to restore habitat on the Cottonwood Trail in the morning from 9-11AM, and hosting a community potluck featuring entertainment from 4-9PM at Pearrygin State Park.

Want to run away and join the circus? Muster at Twisp Commons at 11:30AM on Saturday to join the parade! The Chatauqua will lead their parade of performers and locals through downtown Twisp to the TwispWorks campus where they will host a number of fun and free workshops from 1-4PM. The evening will culminate in a live vaudeville show featuring circus arts, music, and magic at the Methow Valley Community Center – suggested donation $10 for Adults & $5 for kids.
