Firefly Music Festival is a premier music experience set among lush wooded landscapes, featuring renowned headliners, and emerging artists. Witness unforgettable performances and discover the engaging attractions nestled around every turn that make Firefly a can’t-miss summer tradition for music fans from around the world.
Warrior Dash is the 5k obstacle course race that anyone can start and everyone can finish. Whether you’re an elite athlete or just beginning, you’ll conquer 12 world-class obstacles, wade across wooded lakes, and venture through mud-caked backroads. Relive the course with friends at the after-party, and celebrate your decision to leave your normal weekend in the mud.
Chicago Beer Classic is the city’s largest beer festival and summer kickoff, celebrating great beers on the grass of Soldier Field. Draft your perfect lineup of beers and cheers to the huge variety, including upcoming and undiscovered Chicago favorites. It’s the summer kick-off you don’t need game-day tickets to enjoy.
Big Barrel Country Music Festival is a chance to kick back with friends and family, drop the tailgate, pop open a cold one, and enjoy three days of America's favorite country artists.
ShamrockFest is America’s largest St. Paddy’s Day festival, where thousands shake their shamrocks to Celtic rock bands. It’s pure shenanigans where the beer flows strong and everyone is Irish for the day. Visit ShamrockFest.com for more information.
