VILLAGE OF WINNETKA
Picturesquely situated on the shore of Lake Michigan, just 16 miles north of Chicago, Winnetka is made up of tranquil tree-shaded streets and family-oriented neighborhoods. Through the contribution of the village and their leadership we are able to offer a unique blend of great new music in a walkable business district that is home to a variety of shops and parks.
Three main stages are spread throughout the walkable Elm Street business district. The Chicago Cubs stage, the BMO Harris stage and the Fields Auto Group stage will be the site for many of the bands on Friday night and all day Saturday. In addition The Hudson Company Family stage kicks off Saturday's music with performance for all ages starting at 9:00 am in beautiful Dwyer park. The lululemon/Spynergy Chapel stage is in one of the beautiful and historic buildings of Winnetka and provides an intimate setting throughout Saturday to hear music from jazz, to opera, to acoustic rock. Check out the schedule across all of the stages here.
craft Beer and Wine and Food Trucks
Food courts and craft beers and wine will be spread throughout the festival area. As you listen to the music you'll be able to sample beer from Half Acre Brewery and Spiteful Brewing. We'll also have a great selection of wines that you can enjoy as you listen to your new favorite artists or stroll the streets of Winnetka listening to street musicians. Those of you 21 and older will want to be sure to try all the great selections (and don't forget to bring your ID).
To keep you from getting hungry we not only have many fine restaurants in the festival area but there also will be more than a dozen food trucks and vendors out on the street providing selections from gourmet grilled cheese to wings, wraps, tacos, barbecue, pizza and much more
Jim Beam VIP Area
The Winnetka Community House, will be the site of a special VIP area at this year's festival. Located adjacent to the Cubs Stage and a short walk from the lululemon/Spynergy Chapel stage and the BMO Harris Stage the Jim Beam VIP area will provide a place for relaxation and refreshment as well as an up close location for watching the acts on the Cubs Stage.
Tickets for the VIP area go on sale at the beginning of May so check back on how you can get access to this great experience.
