Mark your calendars for each Friday night! Come out and enjoy an annual Chicago holiday tradition in 2016 in Millennium Park. Celebrate the holidays in Millennium Park, when Caroling at Cloud Gate returns on Friday evenings from November 25 through December 16, 2016 at 6 PM during the holiday season.
This free program, presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, in partnership with the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture, showcases Chicago choral groups and invites visitors to participate in a holiday sing-along. Now in its eleventh season, Caroling at Cloud Gate has become a cherished tradition in Chicago, with hundreds of singers gathering each week in the Park.Following the 60-minute caroling session, everyone is encouraged to skate at Millennium Park’s McCormick Tribune Ice Rink, one of the most popular winter destinations in the city.
Bundle up and get ready to belt out some holiday classics at these festive events that are part concert, part sing-along as local Chicago choral groups lead hundreds of celebrants in song. Santa Claus will join the crowd beforehand, and after the music, head a few steps away to take a spin on the McCormick Tribune ice rink.
