August Full Moon Jam

  • Lakefront, near Foster Ave Turf Fields 5100N & Lake Shore Drive Chicago, IL 60640 (map)

The Full Moon Jams are FREE, family-friendly events that happen every full moon during the summer months in Chicago, from March or April to October or November, weather permitting. Started in 2004 by a group of friends celebrating a birthday, the jams have grown in size to accommodate the increasing amount of drummers, fire spinners, families, and random passer-by's that come to enjoy the night.

Picnics & photographers are welcome, but we ask everyone to respect a few simple rules:

LEAVE NO TRACE - Take everything you brought with you back out of the park, including trash.

NO ALCOHOL - or other recreational substances in the park, it is ILLEGAL and puts the jams at risk.

NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY - it's dangerous for the performers.

ALL PETS MUST BE LEASHED - for the safety of the performers, the crowd and your furry friends.

LEAVE BY 11PM - the park closes at 11pm and you will get ticketed if you're there.

Please join the email list that will give you updates on the jams, the schedule and any other important information you will need to know. Send an email to or visit:
