How to Spend Labor Day in Chicago

If you live in Chicago or will be visiting the city over Labor Day weekend, there are plenty of things to do. Make your arrangements to enjoy these activities in style by hiring our Chicago limo service. By leaving the driving to your professional chauffeurs, you can enjoy the weekend with someone special or your family. Here are some Chicago Labor Day activities to consider.

 

40th Annual Chicago Jazz Festival

After a week of free events leading up to it, Chicago's Millennium Park will host the 40th Annual Chicago Jazz Festival during Labor Day weekend. Dianne Reeves will be the headliner on Friday night at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, while Ramsey Lewis will perform on Saturday night. The event will conclude on Sunday with Maceo Parker's performance.

 

North Coast Music Festival

Now in its ninth edition, Union Park will host the North Coast Music Festival over Labor Day weekend. Jamiroquai will be the featured headliner after not playing in the United States for more than a decade. Miguel will also be on hand to deliver his unique blend of hip-hop music accompanied by Axwell. You will want to stay for the exciting after shows before trusting a limo service in Chicago to safely bring you back to your accommodations in luxury.

 

Great American Lobster Fest

The Great American Lobster Fest at Navy Pier promises to once again be the biggest in the Midwest. Dine on lobster flown in from the East Coast just for this event while listening to top bands like The Smiley Tillmon Band, the 17th Floor and Free Fallin' perform. There will be lots of free family fun activities, so you will not want to miss a single moment of this three-day festival. Navy Pier will also be home to a firework show on September 1, 2018.

 

Taste of Polonia

Jefferson Park will be the home to the Taste of Polonia during Labor Day weekend, and everyone will want to pretend they are Polish during this four-day festival. Listen to over 30 bands perform your favorite Polish Music, eat your favorite Polish foods and sample Polish beer. Bring along the kids as they will enjoy face painting, rock wall climbing and other fun activities.

 

African Festival of the Arts

You may think that you have been magically transported to Africa when you visit the African Festival of the Arts in Washington Park. The park will be transformed into an African village complete with music, food and art. You will also find wonderful opportunities to explore African wellness and the region's spirituality during this fun festival that is now in its 29th year.

 

Adler Summer Film Fest

If you have not been to Adler since Memorial Day, then do not let the last chance to see their Summer Film Fest get away from you as Monday will be the last day. A collection of six planetarium shows from across the globe will be presented in their newly remodeled Discovery Center.
