    Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua is Wisconsin's most unique entertainment venue -- a 900 seat, state-of-the-art, all-canvas tent theater located at the base of Mt. Ashwabay three miles south of Bayfield off Hwy. 13. Each year, mid-June through mid-Sept, Big Top presents a 50+ summer show season featuring renowned touring artists and our own house band, the celebrated Blue Canvas Orchestra.
