Attendees provide their own beverages - BYOB, and lawn chair or blanket.

Many thanks to the UD Alumni Association for supporting this event by generously providing funds. Alumni and families of all ages encouraged to join us.

Ravinia is an outdoor entertainment venue located in Highland Park, just north of Chicago, featuring a variety of acts such as classical, pop, contemporary, blues and jazz. It has become a summer staple in Chicago for the main attraction is picnicking on the lawn.

Public Transportation: Ravinia is located in the northern suburbs of Chicago, but is very accessible from the city. The Union Pacific North Line Metra with service from Chicago to Kenosha is highly recommended! The Metra train stops right at the front gate of Ravinia.

Refund deadline is July 13, 2016.
