There's something to do every summer night at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
The Garden is open until 9 p.m. from June through Labor Day. Free concerts nightly, Monday through Thursday. Live music performances that are fun for the whole family. Bring a picnic, dine at the Garden Grille, or the Rose Terrace Beer Garden. Both dining sites have grab & go beverages and food for your convenience.
Buy parking in advance or join the Garden for free parking every day of the year.
Please note: Picnicking is allowed during the concerts on Monday through Thursday evenings. You are encouraged to bring your own chairs, as the Garden has a limited supply. Set up your picnic any time after 4 p.m.
The consumption of alcohol not purchased on the premises is prohibited at the Chicago Botanic Garden. We do have wine and beer for sale in our Garden View Café. Bring it to your picnic.
If you are interested in having your band considered for future music programs at the Garden, please send a press kit with samples of your music to Coordinator of Visitor Events & Programs, Chicago Botanic Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe, Illinois, 60022. All entries will be kept on file and considered when booking future entertainment.
