A Letter from Festival CEO Paul Winberg

Dear Friends,

Greetings and best wishes in 2021!

All of us at the Festival are eager to bring live music back to Millennium Park this summer. We recognize that the past months of social distancing and isolation have taken a toll on our city, and we are looking forward to reconnecting our fellow Chicagoans through the joys of concertgoing in one of the most glorious settings in the world.
At the same time, and because of the dynamic nature of the COVID pandemic, we want to ensure a safe return to Millennium Park for our musicians, staff, volunteers, and you—our loyal patrons. To that end, we are currently working on details for the 2021 season of live performances in consultation with health experts and civic leaders.
Please be on the lookout this spring for more information about our upcoming season and membership program. In the meanwhile, please stay safe and healthy. We can’t wait to see you this summer!
Warmest regards,

Paul Winberg
President & CEO
Grant Park Music Festival
