Sponsor the 2017 Big Top Chautauqua Event!

Big Top Chautauqua is bringing its brand new show Big Top Opry 2 – The Outlaw Years to Richland Center, Saturday, April 8th.

In 2014 the dynamic team of Severin Behnen and Corey Carlson put together a show which celebrated the best of the Grand Ole Opry from the 30s, 40s and 50s. It was a huge hit and such a fun show featuring the songs and performers from the heydays of the Grand Ole Opry. Our next installment of great country and western music takes us from the mid-60s through the early 80s with music from Opry icons like Willie & Waylon, Dolly & Loretta, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Glen Campbell, Charley Pride and Lynn Anderson. This show features the Blue Canvas Orchestra with Corey Carlson and special guests.
