Wheaton, Ill., May 17, 2021 — Cantigny’s popular summer concert series officially begins on June 13 with a performance by classic rock band VOYAGE, at 3 pm. The Sunday afternoon concerts at the Cantigny bandshell have been on hiatus since 2019 due to the pandemic.
“Our summer events calendar is filling up fast, thankfully, but I think the concerts are what visitors have been missing the most,” said Matt LaFond, Cantigny Park executive director. “So many people have been asking about them so it’s exciting to announce that live music is returning to the park.”
Concert logistics, naturally, are a bit different this year. The shows remain free, but for now people must acquire tickets online via Eventbrite. Tickets will be required for entry, with no walk-ups allowed. Full details are posted on Cantigny.org, including health and safety guidelines.
The park also announced it will host Cruise Night Tuesdays, starting May 25. Visitors are encouraged to bring their classic or restored vehicles to the park from 5 to 8 pm and mingle with fellow car enthusiasts. On some Tuesdays, the First Division Museum at Cantigny Park will display military vehicles from its historic motor pool.
Cantigny Park is open daily from 7 am to sunset, and open one hour past sunset on Wednesdays. Parking is $5 per car and free on the first Wednesday of the month. The summer parking fee on Saturdays and Sundays is $10, effective June 5.
Cantigny Park members receive free parking, invitations to exclusive events, and other benefits. More information is online at Cantigny.org.
