Music in downtown
360 N. Broadway
The 30-acre park was designed in a way that would serve many purposes. From the canoe/kayak launch and natural landscaping to the VIP Rooftop Deck and 10-acre music venue, this is the new recreation and entertainment destination for Chicagoland. Bring your kids and fly a kite. Enjoy a local band in the music pavilion with friends. Spread out a blanket and watch fireworks with the family on the 4th of July. RiverEdge Park is your backyard away from home.
From the heralded Blues on the Fox to more than a dozen nationally touring bands, Thomas J. Weisner RiverEdge Park is an impressive and welcoming live music venue.
