Free admission • Grant Park

The annual SummerDance festival brings people of all ages and skill levels together in Grant Park’s Spirit of Music Garden on an open-air dance floor for an evening of live music and dancing. Come for free lessons from a pro dance or simply sit back and enjoy the music.

All summer long, Chicago SummerDance takes place every Friday to Sunday evening each week in Grant Park, as well as on select dates in neighborhood parks citywide for SummerDance In The Parks. Dance styles include waltz, tango, kizomba, swing, salsa, cha-cha, flamenco, and so much more.
