Chautauqua Auditorium

Chautauqua Summer Concert Season 2014

Living in Colorado, you always hear about the amazing Chautauqua auditorium in Boulder but I have to make an embarrassing admission: I have never seen a concert there. Yes, I have been to Ignite Boulder events and I marveled at the building, but it just has never worked out for a full-on music experience. This summer will change that, when my family for sure will be attending B.B. King as guests of the Colorado Chautauqua Association – but looking at the concert lineup, we are definitely going to try and attend several others as well!

Check out their great summer concert series!

I hope you can make it to some of these shows. Chautauqua is a wonderful venue nestled much closer to the heart of Boulder than we sometimes think. Here are maps and directions from Denver, Golden and Longmont.

Tickets are available for these, and various other events at the Chautauqua online box office.

Be sure to follow them on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. Plus stay tuned for my adoration of BB King!

    BB King! That will be so great. And I would love to see Bela Fleck too. Will you give away tickets?
