The announcement to cancel the 2020 summer performances at the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua due to the recent pandemic was recently announced.

“After weighing countless scenarios, we have determined that the most responsible and viable path forward is to cancel all of our summer performances,” a press release states. “With the uncertainty surrounding the safety of large gatherings, it was unfortunately the only decision we could make.”

The same press release did tease Big Top will continue to bring exciting program options during this time.

“We will still be here producing Tent Show Radio, live-streaming our new Tiny Tent Show, creating new musical content for our original shows, and planning quality programs for the future,” the release states.
