Every summer, Ravinia attracts about 600,000 listeners to some 120 to 150 events that span all genres from classical music to jazz to musical theater every June through September. As a nonprofit organization, community outreach and music education initiatives are our key mission. Over 75,000 people are served through Ravinia's Reach*Teach*Play programs each year, ensuring that great music remains accessible to all.

Ravinia Festival is proud to have been the nation’s first outdoor festival to create a smoke-free concert environment starting in 1995.
On January 1, 2008, the City of Highland Park, in support of the Smoke Free Illinois Act, expanded their local smoking prohibition to include outdoor parking lots, public parks, and the Green Bay Road Trail that runs in front of our main West Gate entrance.
Ravinia Festival supports the City of Highland Park in their Smoke Free efforts and is pleased to offer patrons two designated smoking areas, one located at the West Gate entrance and one located in the North parking lot.
Please note that these are the only two areas in which smoking will be permitted by law. Smoking is prohibited on all other festival grounds and in the Park ‘N Ride loading areas.
