Millennium Park - Plan Your Visit

DCASE Homepage  >  Millennium Park  >  Plan Your Visit


Some important changes are coming to Millennium Park this summer. A new security perimeter and bag check will take place for all Jay Pritzker Pavilion events and outside alcohol will be prohibited at these seven events:

  • May 26: Chicago House Music Festival
  • June 8–10: Chicago Blues Festival
  • June 24: Chicago Mariachi Festival
  • July 4: Grant Park Music Festival Independence Day Salute
  • August 9: Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me
  • August 13: Broadway in Chicago Summer Concert
  • August 29–September 2: Chicago Jazz Festival

Like previous years, alcohol will also be prohibited at the two ticketed concerts presented by Jam Productions (June 3 & June 17) and the ticketed Chicago Gourmet (September 28-30)

Please be patient and plan ahead for the Millennium Park Security Perimeter. Knowing what items are prohibited will help speed your bag check. Entry may be faster for those without bags. For more information about the new security measures, including a full list of the prohibited items, visit Policies and Regulations

Millennium Park was created for the enjoyment of Chicago residents and visitors and is home to the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Chicago's premier outdoor music venue, offering more than 80 free concerts, movies and other cultural events throughout the summer.
