Chicago hosts many summer music festivals: Lollapalooza, RiotFest, Pitchfork Music Fest, Wicker Park Green Fest and West Fest; just to name a few that are very easy to access from Two Urns. The Blues, Jazz, Gospel and World Music Festivals – Chicago has it all! The Chicago Marathon is held each October around Columbus Day weekend and the Renegade Craft fair is held in September and December nearby. The annual Mackinac sailboat race, the Air and Water Show and one of our favorites – free concerts at Millennium Park starting in mid-June each season to early September. What better way to cool off on a hot summer’s day than an evening of classical, jazz or world music! That’s why we love our Chicago so.

Ganz Hall – a little gem of an auditorium in Roosevelt University in the South Loop, is an Adler/Sullivan building with FLWright influences (he was employed by them at the time).
