Event Navigation

Enid’s Summer Chautauqua in the Park returns for 2024 on Tuesday, June 11, through Saturday, June 15, at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center (CSRHC). Signs of this annual event become apparent when the big white tent takes its place on the Humphrey Heritage Village grounds every summer.

This year’s theme, “Lift Every Voice: 60 Years Since the Civil Rights Act,” will feature the histories and perspectives of characters who influenced the Civil Rights movement through first-person scholarly presentations. During the dates of the Chautauqua, workshops will be held in the Village Church daily at 10:30 a.m. and noon. Live evening performances will begin with local entertainment at 6:30 p.m., followed by the scholar presentations at 7:30 p.m. To learn more about the event, visit facebook.com/enidchautauqua or facebook.com/CSRHC. Enid Summer Chautauqua is free to attend and open to the public. For more information, visit www.csrhc.org or call 580-237-1907.

Performances will include (from left to right), Doug Mishler as EARL WARREN, Vanessa Adams-Harris as ROSA PARKS, Rebecca Jimerson as CORETTA SCOTT KING, Leslie Goddard as CLAUDIA “LADY-BIRD” JOHNSON, and Jim Armstead as THURGOOD MARSHALL.
