Chautauqua Festival 2016

Chautauqua Festival

Chautauqua Festival is almost here! Come see us on Saturday, April 16th from 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM! This FREE event is about celebrating all the diverse culture in Longview and surrounding areas. It's not too late to rent a booth space - we still have room for you! If you're an author, artist, photographer, builder, etc., we'd love to have you and your creations! The fee to rent a booth space is only $20.00 for the whole day, which helps us keep the event free to the public. To rent a booth space, click here or simply come by the Library. More details about Chautauqua Festival will be unveiled very soon on our Facebook, so be sure to stay tuned!
