Quinceañera

Navy Pier is celebrating the quinceañeras of young ladies throughout the Chicagoland area with free professional group photos on the June 15, July 15 and August 15 this summer. The popular cultural destination has teamed up with the National Museum of Mexican Art to host a photo shoot for 15-year-old birthday girls on the base of the Pier’s Wave Wall staircase on the South Dock against the backdrop of the Centennial Wheel. 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 photo, 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.
