Q: Does Chicago have anything lined up for its Millennium Park?

A: Chicago offers travellers a whole lot when it comes to the Millennium Park. This award-winning 25-acre park showcases the best of the city’s art, music, architecture and landscape design.

And the best part about it is the park is free and has a chockfull of events planned throughout the summer and into fall. Hear a jazz concert beneath a canopy of stars as you sit in the Frank Gehry-designed Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Admire the city skyline from the big bulbous ball popularly known as “The Bean.” Run your feet through the interactive Crown Fountain by Jaume Plensa and smell the flowers as you wander the Lurie Garden.

The park provides an events calendar which you can access directly at
