Quinceañera

Navy Pier is celebrating the quinceañeras of young ladies throughout the Chicagoland area with free professional group photos on June 15, July 15 and August 15, 2019. Local young ladies are invited to gather at the Pier in their finest quinceañera dresses for a “class photo” along the lakefront with others celebrating the special milestone.

All participating young ladies will receive a link to download a free digital copy of the photos, taken by a professional photographer, along with one complimentary ticket to ride the Centennial Wheel. The photo shoots will be followed by live musical performances from local Latin American bands for participants and guests to enjoy for free.

What is la fiesta de quinceañera?

La fiesta de quinceañera is a celebration of a girl’s 15th birthday, marking her transition from childhood into young adulthood.

With origins in Latin America, this time-honored tradition is often observed in Latinx communities throughout Chicago and around the world with family, music, dancing and—for the quinceañera  herself—formal dress, elegant jewelry, and makeup.
