Millennium Park Special Events


Special events at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion include:

  • Thursday, July 8 at 7:30pm — The Auditorium Theatre presents ABT Across America featuring American Ballet Theatre (AuditoriumTheatre.org)
  • Wednesday, August 25 at 7:30pm — A Deeply Rooted Evening for Chicago’s Healing: GOSHEN (preview) presented by Deeply Rooted Dance Theater (DeeplyRootedDanceTheater.org)
  • Thursday, August 26 at 6pm — Dance for Life presented by Chicago Dancers United (ChicagoDancersUnited.org)
  • September 10 at 6:30–8pm — Baroque in the Park presented by Music of the Baroque (Baroque.org)

Jay Pritzker Pavilion will lift the remaining capacity limits for programs (aside from normal venue capacity) and will not require advance registration for the seating bowl or lawn. All summer events will adhere to the latest public health and safety guidelines, with mobile vaccinations at many City-sponsored events.

Other unique performances throughout Millennium Park include:

Two free, outdoor events presented by the Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance (HarrisTheaterChicago.org):

  • August 22 — “INTERPLAY” curated with composer, trumpet player, and multi-instrumentalist Sam Trump on the Harris Theater Rooftop
  • September — “Films.Dance” series, a global collaboration produced by Jacob Jonas The Company and featuring over 150 artists from 25 countries, screening at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion

“Sonic Pavilion” is a series of sound installations commissioned by Experimental Sound Studio (August and September, ESS.org) for the overhead trellis loudspeaker array at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Compositions utilize the entire surface of the trellis’s 60-channel system, resulting in an immersive canopy of sound — a fluid sonic architecture that bridges the focus of a live performance and the majesty of the surrounding cityscape.

Chicago-based contemporary artist Brendan Fernandes (ChicagoManual.style) presents “72 Seasons,” a public artwork and installation in Lurie Garden. The movement-based piece, featuring dancers with costumes by designer Rad Hourani, engages with ballet history and Chicago’s prairie landscape to envision passages of time demarcated by the Japanese calendar. Performances on:

  • Saturday, August 21
  • Saturday, September 25
  • Saturday, October 23
