This weekend is all about dad, so treat him with these events around Chicago.
Start at Ravinia as Alan Cumming serenades you with sappy songs before heading downtown to hear some of the best in country by the lake.
Then, wake up and enjoy breakfast the next morning at Wagner Farm or have brunch at Second City on Father’s Day.
Finally, this weekend is a big one for fairs and festivals, so don’t miss out on the summer fun.
Lawn tickets are still available for “an evening of song and stories from Scotland’s beloved man-child” at Ravinia.
Some of the best acts in country are making their way to Chicago. Headliners Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and Florida Georgia Line will also be joined by Cassadee Pope, Joe Nichols, Justin Moore, Kelsey Ballerini, Maddie & Tae, Thomas Rhett and more.
As Leslie Knope once asked, “Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?” So, have breakfast at Wagner Farm and you can also enjoy live music, dairy demos, wagon rides and other activities.
Start Father’s Day with brunch, complete with herb roasted pork tenderloin au jus, biscuits and gravy, a chicken and waffle bar and more breakfast favorites, before Second City’s laugh-out-loud hilarious comedy show.
