Get directions


From May through October, the Miller Lite Beer Garden on Navy Pier is Chicago’s go-to destination for free, live, outdoor music performances. During your visit, enjoy a large menu of beers, cocktails and frozen drinks, as well as beer-soaked brats, burgers, hand-tossed pizza and more. Best of all, there is no cover to enter, and all ages are welcome!

Get your live music fix at Navy Pier this summer with Live on the Lake!, the Pier’s free summer music and dance series in the Miller Lite Beer Garden as it boasts a better-than-ever lineup in 2017, featuring a wide range of local talent.

This year, join us Sundays for performances from the Old Town School of Folk Music and Wednesdays for blues music presented by Buddy Guy’s Legends. Plus, Pier Dance returns on Thursday nights with cultural rhythms that will keep you moving and grooving all summer long.
