About Patriot's Day

Chautauqua-Wawasee has invited Abraham Lincoln to speak at the Patriot’s Day celebration June 27. Lincoln re-enactor, Danny Russel, brings Lincoln’s wonderful humor, honesty, love of learning, mastery of language and empathy for his fellow man to life in a one-hour presentation on the lawn at Oakwood Resort. Chautauqua-Wawasee invites you to start the Patriot’s Day celebration with Lincoln’s tour-de-force at 4:30, break for dinner at Oakwood’s Pier & Back Porch lakeside restaurant on beautiful Lake Wawasee, then return to the lawn for the 7:30 Patriotic Pops concert by the Fort Wayne Philharmonic. Bring a lawn chair or blanket. Stop by our tent to receive a free patriotic gift. Both events are free to attend.
