Since 1904, Ravinia Festival Association has been Chicago's "sound of summer," a
place where you can meet up with your friends, have a wonderful time and hear some
of the greatest music in the world. We've got stars on the stage and stars in the
sky, and it's all within your reach. But there's more to Ravinia than merely the
world's greatest music. For as many people who walk through Ravinia's gate each
summer, there are just as many ways to enjoy what we call "The Ravinia Experience."
For some, it all starts with a picnic picked up along the way, followed by a hop
on the train and greeting your friends at your favorite spot on the lawn. Gradually,
day turns into evening, and from the comfort of your perfect lawn spot, it culminates
in a great concert by candlelight as you gaze at the stars above.
