- 6:00pm - Red Bull High Rise in Butler Field
- 8:00pm - Chicago Fire Department’s Air/Sea Rescue Re-enactment. The air/sea rescue re-enactment will take place at Queen’s Landing located at Congress and the Lakefront in Grant Park
- 8:15pm - Boat Parade
- 9:00pm - Fireworks
This year’s theme is “Hollywood on the Lake”.
“Hollywood on the Lake” will be brought to life as boats will be decorated with lights and props as they sail along beautiful Lake Michigan, between the Shedd Aquarium at Roosevelt Road and the Chicago Yacht Club at Monroe Street. People of all ages stake out spots along the lakefront as early as 9 am to ensure a good view of the event. Taking public transportation, walking or biking to Venetian Night is encouraged.
Venetian Night is the longest running event that the City of Chicago produces, and was once a multiple day event that featured a beauty pageant and parade on State Street in addition to the lighted boat parade and fireworks show on the waterfront.
A special thank you to Red Bull & the Chicago Yachting Association
