January 20-27, 2017

Pop Up Oxford will kick off on Saturday, January 20 through Saturday, January 27 with events and programs celebrating Oxford’s rich cultural scene. The idea stemmed from the Chautauqua adult education movement that began at the turn of the 20th century. The Chautauqua brought together culture and entertainment in various formats including lectures, events and programs. Theodore Roosevelt called the Chautauqua movement “the most American thing in America.” Pop Up Oxford will encompass the idea of the Chautauqua movement by hosting various events, speakers, exhibits and musical components all of which Oxford has become known for in celebrating its literary, musical and cultural heritage. Visit Oxford has collaborated with various organizations, attractions and events to create a week-long schedule of activities for visitors and locals to celebrate Oxford’s rich cultural scene.
