Plan your summer concert schedule with our calendar of free outdoor concerts in Chicago!
There’s nothing like hearing your favorite performers in person. What makes it even better is when that live music is outdoors, under blue skies or twinkling stars.
But the best way to experience live music is when it’s outdoors and it’s free!
Please note that some of the festivals are technically free but request a suggested donation for admission.
This calendar is updated frequently, so bookmark it and check back often for recently added free outdoor concerts! You can also visit our Chicago events calendar and our Things To Do in Chicago section.
