Night Out in the Parks

Presented by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Night Out in the Parks provides world-class performances in Chicago’s neighborhood parks throughout the summer. With hundreds of Movies in the Parks, live concerts, festivals and theatrical shows, there’s something for everyone. 
Arts programming in neighborhoods across the city advances the goals of the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Cultural Plan. In its third year, the 2015 Night Out in the Parks series will bring more than 1,000 events and programs to neighborhood parks throughout the city, making community parks safe havens and hubs of activity.  The Chicago Park District has partnered with the following arts and community organizations to expand and produce this successful initiative.
