Nestled at the base of Mt. Ashwabay Ski Hill, 3 miles south of Bayfield, Wisconsin, Big Top overlooks Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Our summer schedule includes performances by renowned national, regional and touring musicians and runs from mid June to early September. On balmy summer nights the tent sidewalls can be lifted and people may sit outside and even up on the hillside. The sound is superb and on clear nights you can see the Milky Way and sometimes even the Northern Lights!
The shuttles operates evening and matinee performances including Big TAP ChautauquaFest. Call for more information 715-373-5552. NOTE: Construction on HWY 13 between Washburn and Ashland may delay traffic from now through July.Read More
