New Plans for Canceled Summer Events in Chicago

The Stay-At-Home Ordinance has dramatically changed Chicagoans’ summer plans for festivals, concerts, and shopping, but many organizations have found alternate ways to let us enjoy summer without the large gatherings. 

Although in-person concerts will be non-existent this summer, many music venues are finding ways to bring concerts to you. LollaPalooza will be streaming old performances, Pitchfork plans to go livestream with several artists, and many other local venues are doing the same.

Fireworks are the perfect way to end a summer day at Navy Pier! This summer, Navy Pier Fireworks will begin two weeks after the governor’s Stay-At-Home Ordinance is lifted and will last through Labor Day. 

If fresh summer produce is what you look forward to most in the summer months, don’t stress! 2020 is the year of virtual shopping, and that includes Chicago’s farmers markets too. Shop the Logan Square, South Loop, or Wicker Park farmers markets from home and get your fresh produce delivered or grab them yourself via contactless pickup.

On a rainy summer day, take a virtual tour of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum on Instagram. They post tons of animal and insect videos with bits of history so it’s almost like you’re actually there exploring in person.

Beat the summer heat by supporting your favorite stores and local shops straight from your own home. Many premier stores along Michigan Ave and local boutiques are still open for online ordering. Be sure to browse some native shops in River West and Gold Coast online.

Although many of the 2020 Chicago street fests have been canceled or postponed for after summer, there are still a few that have moved online for your enjoyment. Virtually attend the Old Town Art Fair, Mandala Makers Festival, or the 2020 Chosen Few Picnic & Festival.
