Pop Up Oxford was inspired by the Chautaqua adult education movement that began at the the turn of the 20th century. The movement was hailed by Theodore Roosevelt as “the most American thing in America” and inspired events, programs, and lectures where culture and entertainment could come together. In this same spirit, Pop Up Oxford will play host to a variety of opportunities to experience Oxford’s literary, musical, and cultural heritage.
“Visit Oxford is excited to collaborate with so many different organizations and events to bring people to Oxford,” said Director of Visit Oxford, Mary Allyn Hedges. “Pop Up Oxford highlights so many different things that Oxford has become known for culturally and offers something for everyone.”
With participating hotels offering special packages, Pop Up Oxford marks the perfect occasion for visitors to enjoy a week of world-renowned presentations and performances set on the backdrop of Oxford’s rich cultural heritage.
