Editorial Review of Chicago Jazz Festival

Date: September 4-5, 2010

Cost: Free

Organizer: City of Chicago

What to expect: As if this even needs an explanation. Jazz Fest is certainly one of Grant Park's best, a weekend teeming with the best in local and national acts on three stages.

Why to go: Performers include Nicole Mitchell, Henry Threadgill, Brad Mehldau, Kurt Elling, The Either/Orchestra, Brian Blade and more. The Young Jazz Lions Stage is also back this year, featuring high school and college ensembles.

Additional info: There will be an opening-night concert with a to-be-announced special guest on Friday, September 3 at Millennium Park. There will also be jazz programming at the Chicago Cultural Center on September 1 and in Millennium Park on September 2.
