The festival has four stages within a 36-arce park where a variety of events are hosted throughout the summer. 


The concert series will play host to Chicago, Charlie Puth, Ne-Yo, Train, Boyz II Men, and Buddy Guy. 

There are many family friendly events on the lineup this year including Laurie Berkner and the returns of Ralph’s World and Opera for the Young. The Disney hit Encanto comes to the big screens around the park for Chicagoland’s first showing with a live orchestra.

The Breaking Barriers Festival is retuning for a second year in a row. The event celebrates women composers and artists who will be featured throughout the season.
