Savor the Chicago summer by spending your Wednesday nights at the Shedd Aquarium for their signature summer evening event series, Jazzin’ at the Shedd, sponsored by Chase. Every Wednesday from 5pm to 10pm, June 21 through September 13, Chicagoans can treat themselves to some cool drinks, exciting exhibits, and smooth jazz.

Explore the Shedd Aquarium’s Abbott Oceanarium and Amphibians special exhibit while enjoying cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and some of the area’s best jazz performers.


With the main event space overlooking Chicago’s lakeshore and skyline, Jazzin’ at the Shedd is sure to bring event-goers great views, great live music and a front-row seat for Navy Pier’s fireworks show that begins at 9:30pm on Wednesdays and 10:15pm on Saturdays all summer long, through September 2.
