Audiences will gather for a variety of historical enactments, workshops, and discussions at the 2017 Oklahoma Chautauqua in Tulsa. This year's event will focus on the theme "Cowboys & Cattle Trails," examining the roles cattle drives and cowboys played in shaping American history and culture from the 1840s to the 1890s.

Daytime workshops will be held at noon and 5:30 pm with evening programs beginning at 7:00 pm. The evening events will include first person presentations and audience questions to a historical figure in character and to the scholar portraying the character. Portrayals of figures such as Jesse Chisolm, Judge Isaac Parker, and more will provide a close-up view of this era in Oklahoma history as well as presenting a broader, national perspective. All Chautauqua programs are free and open to the public.
