2014 New Old Time Chautauqua Tour in Idaho, Montana and eastern Washington

in honor of Faith Petric

This year's tour is dedicated to our late friend and dedicated Chautauquan, Faith Petric, a wonderful loving member of our troupe and an amazing folk singer. To this end we have chosen a route that takes us on a trip to wilds of Faith's land, Idaho, Montana and Eastern Washington. Beginning on July 15th and ending August 4th, 2014 the tour will travel to in chronological order to: Sandpoint, ID (including two days of pre-Chautauqua), Libby, MT., Eureka, MT, Hot Springs, MT, Orofino, ID (the town where Faith was born) and Spokane, WA.

Learn about the history of the Chautauqua movement and New Old Time Chautauqua all along our tour route, in the following museums:

The Vaudevile Extravaganzas on this tour will feature:

The Flying Karamazov Brothers
Joey Pipia * PepperJill & Jack * Amy Englehart
