2017 Ravinia Festival Line Up

It’s almost spring/summer in Chicagoland and a few things everyone must do before summer ends: go to a Cubs game, hang out at the lakefront, grab a drink in a beer garden on a Saturday afternoon and pack a picnic for a day at Ravinia Festival.  Ravinia Festival is the oldest outdoor festival in the United States and takes place between June 10 and Sept. 17 in Highland Park, IL.  There is a concert for everyone including movie soundtrack performances, classical concerts, music legends (Aretha Franklin, Stevie Nicks, Willie Nelson and Tony Bennett to name a few) and currant favs including Andrew Bird, Fitz and the Tantrums and John Legend.
