Ohio Chautauqua 2017

Warren, Ohio

June 20 – 24

Ohio Chautauqua is a community tradition in Warren. Warren first welcomed Ohio Chautauqua in 2004, and has hosted the event regularly since then in its beautiful downtown park, which is adjacent to its historic town square. The county seat of Trumbull County, Warren was founded in 1798 as part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. Many examples of late 19th– and early 20th-century architectural styles still stand in downtown Warren, including the Trumbull County Courthouse and the Trumbull County Carnegie Law Library, in addition to office buildings, banks, stores, and homes surrounding the Courthouse Square area.
