Summer Scheduling Series: Ravinia

We usually head up to Ravinia at least once a summer for an adult night out -- but this year, we are thinking about making it a family excursion. Ravinia has lots of family-friendly offerings in a variety of price ranges. Plus, you can take the train literally right to the front gates (and frankly, my kids might find that part even more exciting than the concert).

Here are a few good options for family shows at Ravinia this summer:

  • Chicago Children's Choir on June 4th. For $25, you get a picnic, face painting, and a lawn seat.
  • Milkshake on June 12th. 
  • Ralph's World on June 26th. This local musician always delivers an upbeat show that the kiddos love.
  • Bobby McFerrin  and the Chicago Children's Choir on June 27th. You remember this guy, right? "Don't worry, be happy . . ." Well, he is back performing Music from Vocabularies.

You can check out the whole listing of kid's concerts and events here. Some
shows take place during the day which is nice for those among us who get tucked into bed at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for kiddos age 10 and under are only $5 on the lawn. Kids under
the age of 5 are admitted for free on the lawn for Chicago Symphony
Orchestra performances. Definitely check out the Family Space
when kids can make music in the "instrument petting zoo."

Up tomorrow: All the good stuff the Chicago Park District has to offer.
