Thursday, June 22, 6-9 pm
Cantigny’s “Summer Nights” series offer adult-oriented fun nights every Thursday from 6 to 9 pm, featuring drinks, music, and entertainment with a different main event or theme every week.
Cantigny is hosting a charitable event and invites members of the LGBTQ+ community and supporters to celebrate Pride month on the beautiful McCormick Allée. All proceeds from the evening will be donated to charity.
Local trivia host, Baig of Tricks Entertainment, will facilitate queer film trivia! Prizes from LGBTQ+ businesses will be awarded for first, second, and third place. Guests are invited to strike a pose at our photo booth powered by Snap Shot Foto, or enjoy a free 10 minute tarot reading courtesy of Mystic Arts & Tarot (while time allows). Don’t miss balloon artist Lilo Entertainment, who will be roaming the celebration creating beautiful balloon art free of charge.
A nice selection of food trucks will be on site, or bring a picnic from home. The Cantigny food and beverage team will offer a specially themed cocktail. On this night, the drink is The Easy Rider (Vodka, Peach Schnapps, Blue Curacao, Grenadine, Pineapple, and Cherry Garnish). Beer and wine will be available, too, including refreshing Cantigny Kolsch, brewed for us by 93 Octane Brewery in St. Charles.
