It is difficult to describe a Chautauqua concisely and saying that it is a week of FIRE talks, 1-to-1s with the bloggers/podcasters and meeting your tribe doesn't really do it justice. There has been a huge amount written about Chautauqua over the last few years so check out the testimonial page for blogs written about the event and more.
You arrive at stunning location and you meet an incredibly diverse group of people all with similar values and beliefs. You meet Millennial Revolution, Mr1500, Jillian Montana Money adventures, the Mad Fientist, JD Roth and some of the other most famous people in the FIRE community and you get to connect and chat deeply over the course of an entire week. Yes we will talk about finance, investment and more but the heart of Chautauqua is about connecting with like minded people and being inspired to create your life, how you want to live it.
One of the biggest thing people say that they get out of this event is "I've met my tribe!"
JL Collins built this event so he could have "cool conversations, with cool people in cool locations" and that is what Chautauqua is all about

When you shouldn't come to Chautauqua
Mr Money Mustache wrote about when you shouldn't come to Chautauqua in his first post about the event and he is absolutely right. This is a premium event and you shouldn't come to Chautauqua if you can't afford to, if you have to finance it through credit or if you think this is a one stop shop to learning everything about FI. You can get all the information for free through the bloggers' websites above.
