Each summer, the Grant Park Music Festival brings music to the neighborhoods through the popular Night Out in the Parks series. Part of a vast lineup of Chicago Park District events ranging from the performing arts to film to nature programs*, Night Out in the Parks will feature the Festival's Project Inclusion String fellows in weekly concerts celebrating music of BIPOC and women composers. The concerts will travel to six Chicago parks including Harrison Park (July 15), Chicago Women’s Park (July 22), Indian Boundary Park (July 29), Eleanor Boathouse (August 5), Nichols Park(August 12), and Lake Shore Park (August 19). All neighborhood concerts are free, family friendly and take place on Thursdays at 6:30PM.
The Grant Park Music Festival is a key partner in Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks program. The Chicago Park District, in partnership with over 100 local artists and organizations, presents engaging events and performances that enhance quality of life across Chicago and amplify the artistic and cultural vibrancy in every neighborhood.
