Performing arts organizations and venues in and near the South Loop offer performances for a wide range of tastes, moods and interests, and audiences of all ages. Some of these, like the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, are large and well known, whereas others can be considered hidden gems. Many performances are free or low cost.
We share as many options as we can via our seasonally-focused Things to Do pages, the South Loop Chronicles, Facebook, and Twitter, but we can’t possibly capture them all. To help you identify performing arts opportunities throughout the year, the links below will take you to their respective Events/Calendar pages (if they have them). From there, of course, you can access other pages to learn more. If you have a special interest in any of these performing arts groups or venues, we encourage you to sign up for their email lists and/or follow them on social media.
If we have missed any performing arts groups and venues in or near the South Loop that you think should be included on this page, please contact us.
