Music on the Esplanade

Music Events

Evening music performances at the Garden are fun for the whole family!

Music events are free; regular parking and Garden admission fees apply for nonmembers
Watch the sunset, and unwind with live music on the Esplanade. You are encouraged to bring your own chairs, as the Garden has a limited supply. Picnicking is welcome during evening concerts, or stop by one of our dining locations to grab a bite and some drinks. In the event of inclement weather, check online for daily cancellation updates. Cook County Forest Preserve District regulations prohibit the consumption of alcohol not purchased on the premises. Beer and wine are available for purchase in the Garden View Café. Thank you for your cooperation.
