Big Entertainment Always on Stage at Big Top Chautauqua

   Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua is celebrating their 21st season of providing seventy-plus nights of concerts, plays, lectures, and a highly acclaimed professional local troupe which performs original multi-media musicals in the intimate 900-seat, all-canvas, state-of-the-art tent theater.

  Big Top Chautauqua is nestled at the base of Mt. Ashwabay Ski Hill, 3 miles south of Bayfield, Wisconsin, overlooking Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. The summer schedule includes performances by renowned national, regional and touring musicians and runs from mid June to early September.

  On balmy summer nights the tent sidewalls can be lifted and people may sit outside and even up on the hillside. The sound is superb and on clear nights you can see the Milky Way and sometimes even the Northern Lights!
