Program Location

Steele Memorial Bandstand and Gazebo (number 29 on the Lakeside Chautauqua map). Because the Gazebo is an outdoor venue, the Lake Erie Science program will be moved to the Pavilion East Deck (number 26) if rain is expected.

Once you are within the Lakeside Gates, you’ll turn left onto Maple Avenue and travel north until you reach the end and the lake is in front of you, then turn right/east toward the Bandstand.

Directions and a map of the Lakeside campus can be found on the Lakeside website. Once on the Marblehead Peninsula, be sure to follow the directions on this website and not GPS because during the Chautauqua Season, Lakeside is a gated community and only certain entrances are open.
