Entrance Fee and Concert Details

  • Concerts are held at the preserve's outdoor amphitheater, Millennia Plaza, overlooking a 115-acre lake.
  • To help offset our costs to host these quality concerts, there is an entrance fee of $6 per car after 5 pm on event nights.
  • Arrive early to secure a parking spot; cars are turned away when parking is full. For your safety, and as a courtesy to preserve neighbors, please park in the preserve only.
  • Bring blankets and lawn chairs. Pop up canopies are not permitted in the plaza or lawn.
  • Pack a picnic, or purchase a light dinner, snack or beverage from the preserve's walk-up café.
  • For concert reminders, weather updates or to learn if a concert has been canceled, call 847-968-3497 or get updates via Twitter. There is no rescheduling if a concert is cancelled.
  • To make your concert outing even more memorable, call 847-968-3499 to reserve a pontoon boat for your group of up to eight.
  • Before the concert begins, spend the afternoon at the preserve swimming, fishing, or boating on the 115-acre lake, or hiking, biking or in-line skating on nearly 7 miles of trails. Stop by the Visitors Center to explore educational exhibits and learn about rental space, and visit the café.
  • With the exception of service animals, pets are not permitted in this preserve.
