Jazzin' Private Event Space

Jazz. Cocktails. The lake. Fireworks. And 32,000 animals. That's Jazzin' at the Shedd! Jazzin’ takes place every Wednesday evening, June 21 through Sept. 13.

Want a more personal Jazzin’ experience? Soundings by Jazzin’ is a private indoor area located off our north terrace, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Lake Michigan, Monroe Harbor, Navy Pier and the city skyline. It is also the perfect location to view Navy Pier’s fireworks display!
