The pre-eminent expression of lifelong learning in the United States, Chautauqua Institution comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. Over the course of nine weeks, more than 100,000 people visit Chautauqua and participate in programs, classes and community events for all ages — all within the beautiful setting of a historic lakeside village. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue.
Located in the Pier Building near Miller Bell Tower, the Pier Club offers recreation and entertainment for Chautauqua’s young adults. Programming includes DJ nights, open mic nights, concerts and other special events, along with access to pool tables, table tennis, foosball, large screen TVs, video games and a snack bar.
