Cantigny’s Jazz and Wine Fest returns with a touch of European flair! This entertainment-filled afternoon will feature multiple acts on two stages, and wine sampling stations with over a dozen varieties. The bands will perform on two stages in different areas of Cantigny Park, but not simultaneously, so you can enjoy all of them. No matter where you are in the park, we promise you will hear the music!

As the jazz notes waft through Cantigny, oenophiles can sample French wines of different varietals and styles. Cantigny’s food and beverage team has curated a high-quality menu of reds and whites for easy summer sipping.

Gates open at 11 am on June 23. Seating is on the lawn, so blankets and/or folding chairs are recommended. Cantigny Food & Beverage will offer a wide variety of meals and snacks, plus beer and soft drinks. No outside alcohol or coolers will be allowed.
