This Chicago institution brings on such legendary headliners as Sonny Rollins and Ornette Coleman, who take the stage in late August. The Chicago Jazz Festival is one of the most extensive free jazz festivals in the world and features the work of pioneers like Duke Ellington, as well as the contemporary piano stylings of giants like Herbie Hancock. The four-day festival also incorporates an art fair and Chicago’s world famous restaurants to harmonize with all your senses. And for your children, making its debut is an all new kids activity area to occupy them mind, body, and soul.
