Chicago Fact: Grant Park has seen two events of great importance for American culture - the 1968 Democratic Convention protests and the 2008 election night acceptance speech of Barack Obama.
Chicago is filled with wonderful events throughout the year. These are just a few of our favorite things:
Far and away the best outdoor concert venue is Charter One Pavilion, located next to the Adler Planetarium on Northerly Island. This is another intimate concert venue with just about 7,000 seats. Looking over your shoulder while in your seat you will see 12th Street Beach and a great many boats anchored near the shore of our beautiful Lake Michigan to hear the show.
See the wildly popular show which combines music, comedy and multimedia theatrics in a completely unique and largely indescribable form of entertainment.
