Shedd Aquarium becomes Chicago's premier jazz venue again with another season of Jazzin' at the Shedd. This Chicago tradition combines some of the area's best bands, the city's breathtaking skyline and an unrivaled array of aquatic animals from around the world. Add light refreshments and drinks, and you've got an unbeatable summer evening of fun.
Jazzin' happens every Thursday evening through Aug. 28 (except Aug. 14). Bands play on Shedd's north terrace and inside at the Caribbean Reef. Ticket sales begin at 5 p.m., and we stay open until 10 (Oceanarium, Wild Reef and "Lizards" special exhibit until 8 p.m.). Admission is $10 a person (free to Shedd members) at the street-level accessible entrance.
