Underpass Official Opening June 9

Next week we open the gates to the 2011 season at Ravinia Festival! Tickets are available now to see the Emmy Award©-winning Chicago Children’s Choir on Thursday, June 9. Plus you can join us early to enjoy special events in the park. Festivities start at 5:00 p.m. Be one of the first to walk through the new underpass with Ravinia President/CEO Welz Kauffman in a grand opening celebration. It will be an evening to remember with plenty of family fun!

Win prizes, sample food from Levy Restaurants and enjoy activities for kids before the concert. Kids can enjoy free train rides in the park with our friends from Kohl Children’s Museum. Visit the Kids Club table for coloring activities and free membership sign-up. Spin the prize wheel to win great gifts from Ravinia such as tickets, picnic items, playing cards, T-shirts and more.

Metra will also be on site providing safety tips for the family. Ravinia’s own REACH*TEACH*PLAY will provide an instrument petting zoo along with the Highland Park Strings.

Activities will end at 7:15 p.m. just before the concert. While the activities are free, patrons must purchase a ticket to attend the concert in order to enter the park. For more park information, visit our website
