2020 Virtual Celebration

View online from the comfort of your home!

We hope you join us on Tuesday, October 27 for the Pier’s first Virtual Celebration! Your support ensures that free public programming, like Water Colors and Wiggle Worms, returns better than ever next spring. 

All contributions are fully deductible and support the Pier’s mission and free public programming.

Navy Pier is dedicated to showcasing the talents of local artists and cultural organizations. This past summer, one of our first priorities was the revival of the Pier’s free public programming in a safe and distanced manner. We’re proud to be a place for the public to safely rediscover Chicago. Prioritizing free live music, fitness classes, jazz concerts in Polk Bros Park, and cultural celebrations means supporting local organizations, artists and musicians who have lost so much income and performance opportunity since COVID-19 began.

For more information on the 2020 Virtual Celebration, please contact Andrea Chwee at or 312-595-5364.
