The Pennsylvania Chautauqua sponsors an Art Show, as a community fundraiser, on the third full weekend in August. The Pennsylvania Chautauqua is a non-profit organization established in 1892 for the purpose of "the advancement of literary, scientific, intellectual, physical and social welfare and the promotion of cultural and religious activities, recreation and entertainment".
The Pennsylvania Chautauqua is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Mount Gretna is a small Victorian community founded in the late 1800's as a summer resort. Initially the only way for residents to reach their cottages in the woods was to travel by train. Gretna was a stop along the Cornwall/Lebanon line. Our streets were footpaths until automobiles became the mode of travel. Many of the original cottages surround an open-air playhouse where numerous cultural events are held. Our quaint atmosphere attracts many visitors every summer for music, theater, a visit to the local ice cream shop or just a walk in the woods and, of course, to the Art Show!
The Mount Gretna Outdoor Art Show is proud to be considered as one of the best shows in the country. The show is a proud recipient of
