The Grand Illumination Of Evening Island

At twilight, starting June 1

As the sun sets every evening, spectacular lights illuminate Evening Island, casting a magical glow upon the lakeside waters.

Enjoy family-friendly summer hours for Chicago's best early morning walks and sunset strolls. Come back all summer long for exciting after-hours events, family activities, and outdoor dining at the Evening Grille, open daily.

The Chicago Botanic Garden will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. June 1 through September 2, so that visitors can stay just a little bit longer.
