Ravinia Festival Ranked as a Top Alternative Music Festival

Ravinia 2011 – Go Gos and the B52s

Fox News has ranked Ravinia Festival as one of the Top Alternative Music Festivals in the country. Being not only the oldest music festival in the country, but the oldest on the continent, it is very flattering to still be considered as one of the best! None of this would be possible without you. Thank you for all your patronage and support over the past 107 years (6 months, and 26 days), making Ravinia Festival the greatest music venue ever. (Yes, ever)

“What truly defines us is that music-lovers can really create their own vision of what Ravinia is to them--an intimate dinner date for two followed by a performance by the great Chicago Symphony Orchestra, or a group of friends on the lawn partying with the Blues Brothers.” – Welz Kauffman, Ravinia President and CEO.
