Spend your Saturday evening on the Great Lawn in Millennium Park at the Grant Park Music Festival's Pastoral Picnic in White! Dress in your classiest white apparel, pack a picnic and a white blanket, and enjoy the evening listening to the sounds of Tchaikovsky played by the Grant Park Orchestra.

The Festival's Pastoral Picnic in White is inspired by
the French phenomenon that began in Paris in 1988, when friends gathered at the Bois de Boulogne for a dinner party and dressed in white so they could see each other in the dark. Now, every year, thousands of people gather in Paris, as well as other cities in Europe, Canada and throughout the States for these elegant pop-up dinner parties.

Here at the Festival, everyone is invited, there is no registration fee and anyone can join this free, themed picnic in the Park.
