immerse, inquire + interact

Every summer, audiences from all over Northeast Ohio travel to Chagrin Falls to engage in stimulating conversation with renowned speakers. Past topics have focused on compelling issues such as the ethics of cheating, presidential power, the making of the Steven Sondheim documentary “Six by Sondheim”, and sustainable foods and practices in Northeast Ohio.

The series also includes The Young Explorers Program, held at the Chagrin Falls Branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library, engaging our youngest participants in thought-provoking activities.

All programs provide an opportunity for Q&A and post-lecture conversation. Make an evening of it and enjoy dinner, shopping, dessert and of course the beautiful Chagrin falls. Visit for information about village merchants.

2017 topics and speakers will be announced in the spring!

Chagrin Arts is now a member of The Chautauqua Trail, joining 16 other Chautauquas from around North America. For more information about The Chautauqua Trail, please visit please visit
