Free admission • Millennium Park

Experience a summer of extraordinary music with 30+ free classical concerts. The Grant Park Music Festival has been a Chicago tradition for almost 90 years. Held at Millennium Park, the festival is the nation’s only free, summer-long outdoor classical music series.

The festival features 10 weeks of concerts, artistic development initiatives, radio broadcasts, and community engagement and outreach programs. Grab a spot on the lawn, set up a picnic, and kick back while Pritzker Pavilion’s state-of-the-art acoustic system delivers an extraordinary sonic experience — all with the Chicago skyline as a backdrop.

Festival concerts in the Jay Pritzker Pavilion offer free seating on the Great Lawn (spread out on a blanket or settle into some lawn chairs!) just beyond the stage. Seating is first-come, first-serve and no admission tickets are required.

The seating closest to the stage in the Seating Bowl is reserved for members, groups, and visitors with single-night Experience Passes.
