Festival Description

Grant Park comes alive with swing, jive, fusion and bebop when Jazz Fest opens the Labor Day weekend at the Petrillo Music Shell. Certainly, this is one of the biggest summer music festivals and one of the most popular in the nation. This long standing Labor Day weekend tradition is not to be missed and it’s a great way to say adieu to Summer. Past performers have included Herbie Hancock, Tatsu Aoki, Liquid Soul, Phil Woods and Chick Corea. Admission is free.

Festival Dates August 29 - September 1, 2013
