When going to Ravinia, check to see if they have multiple events on the same night in different venues there. If they do, get there extra early if you want to get decent parking.

We have never driven because the train seems so very simple. I have also read on yelp that there is only one way in and one way out so it can take a long time to leave the venue. It also seems to me that there is alot of imbibing so we just feel safer on the train. We hope to bike next summer!

My summer is now complete. Went to Ravinia last night and saw Cheap Trick perform "Budokan" and "Sgt. Pepper" -- with a full orchestra. Awesome concert and had great " Goldstar" pavilion seats.

About the Ticket Supplier: Ravinia Festival

There's more to Ravinia than merely the world's greatest music. For as many people who walk through Ravinia's gate each summer, there are just as many ways to enjoy what they call "The Ravinia Experience."

For some, it all starts with a picnic picked up along the way, followed by a hop on the train and greeting your friends at your favorite spot on the lawn. Gradually, day turns into evening, and from the comfort of your perfect lawn spot, it culminates in a great concert by candlelight as you gaze at the stars above.

For others, it's a dinner reservation at one of Ravinia's popular on-site restaurants followed by a casual stroll to the Pavilion, where you go to see and hear the stars on the stage.

Bring your own lavish picnic, treat yourself to an ice cream cone at intermission, or just come as you are and leave the details to them.

Since 1904, Ravinia has been Chicago's "sound of summer," a place where you can meet up with your friends, have a wonderful time and hear some of the greatest music in the world. They've got stars on the stage and stars in the sky, and it's all within your reach. Enjoy!
