The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs is excited to once again present Chicago SummerDance this summer as the Spirit of Music Garden in Grant Park blossoms into an urban dance space each Thursday through Sunday from June 17 to August 29. Forty-two different live bands swing, waltz, salsa, cha-cha, and more for locals and visitors. Last year over 100,000 people enjoyed the Chicago SummerDance festival, making it the largest festival of its kind in the United States.
Chicago SummerDance events occur every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening, from 6 to 9:30 pm and on each Sunday afternoon from 4 to 7 pm, weather permitting.
