Chautauqua Auditorium

900 Baseline Rd.
Boulder, CO 80302
The Colorado Chautauqua Association comprises, among other amenities, the state's oldest music venue, having opened in the shadow of the Flatirons in 1898. The Chautauqua Auditorium provides a beautiful setting for performances by a variety of nationally known acts such as Andrew Bird, Son Volt, Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle. While technically indoors, the minimalist barn-like structure allows the coolness of the mountain nights to pass through, making listeners feel as though they're out in the open, under the stars.
