about us

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. We offer over 50 musical performances all summer (mid-June - mid-Sept). See one of our many Chautauqua Original Musicals by the Blue Canvas Orchestra & Singers, or hear national performers like Keb' Mo', Joan Baez, Willie Nelson, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and others. Come see what all the ballyhoo is about! For performance schedules and tickets call toll free at 888-244-8368 or visit
