May 17 Is Classical Appreciation Day! Save 20% On Tickets At


Key to the not-for-profit Ravinia Festival’s mission is presenting classical music concerts at attractive prices. On top of these already low prices, once a year we offer both lawn tickets and reserved seats to the Pavilion, Martin Theatre and Bennett Gordon Hall events at 20 percent off. This year we make it even easier by extending the offer to our online customers. From midnight to midnight on Saturday, May 17, any and all concerts featuring classical music or artists—those detailed on the classical side of our annual brochure—will be discounted by 20 percent.

Customers may also receive this discount in person from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Ravinia’s Box Office, where experienced staff can help them place orders. Ravinia Gifts will also be open on May 17, offering discounts of up to 50 percent along with surprise specials throughout the day. Please note that there will not be a vendor fair or live entertainment at Ravinia on May 17, as there had been in the past. The 20 percent discount cannot be combined with other offers (there are no discounts on dining packages, wine clubs, Associates events, punch passes or gift certificates) and does not apply to nonclassical concerts.
