Memorial Day Weekend is over and beautiful sunny weather is finally upon us!
We love being located in Chicago because that means we get to take advantage of all of the outdoor summer events. From street festivals to family events, there’s something out there for everyone. The barbeques are getting fired up and the bands are doing their sound check. It’s amazing how much the city comes to life when the warm weather hits.
The Taste of Chicago brings together some of Chicago’s finest local restaurants, awesome bands in concert, as well as the 2nd annual Made in Chicago Market. The Taste is a huge part of any Chicagoan’s summer so we’re super excited to be a part of this event that now also brings together artisans from all over the Chicago area to showcase their products. The variety of food, music, and shopping makes this event the best place to spend a beautiful July day. So don’t just come for the food, come check out the Brynn Capella booth from July 8 – 10 to pick up a bag for your next summer event!
Some of us here at the Brynn Capella office have returned to Chicago for the summer and wanted to share our top five favorite free summer events in Chicago:
Downtown Sound (free concerts in Millennium Park every Monday & Thursday at 6:30p)
Movies in the Parks (for the full schedule, Click Here)
The Taste of Chicago (July 8 – 12)
Chicago Air and Water Show (August 15 – 16)
Shedd Aquarium Free Museum days (June 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16)
Summer events are fit for any audience. They are perfect for your group of friends to switch things up and have a fun night spent outside. Yet these events are also extremely family friendly. The kids are sure to have just as much fun as the parents. Whether during the day or at night, the event will finish up as the sun is going down to get those kids to bed on time! Just make sure to pack a lot of sunscreen and water for your long, fun, FREE day!
