Jazz. Cocktails. The lake. Fireworks. And 32,000 animals. That’s Jazzin’ at the Shedd, celebrating its 20th anniversary! 

Bring your family and friends to Shedd to hear some of the city’s finest musicians and vocalists, from straight-ahead jazz to funk, while you enjoy beverages and light refreshments for purchase, lake breezes and the skyline from our terraces. And when the sun goes down, the sky lights up with fireworks from Navy Pier. 

Take advantage of our extended hours to visit with your favorite animals—the Abbott Oceanarium, Jellies special exhibit and Polar Play Zone will be open until 8 p.m. (last entry 7:45 p.m.). Wild Reef will be open until 9 p.m. (last entry 8:45 p.m.) and the aquarium galleries, along with the terraces, will stay open until 10 p.m.

Feel the wonder with Stingray Touch! Our Stingray Touch experience can be added to your Jazzin' visit for an additional fee of $3. Stingray Touch will be open until 8 p.m. (last entry 7:45 p.m.).
