Bands on Broadway


2022 Bands on Broadway 

The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the return of this exciting summer musical event. On the first three Friday nights in August, restaurants on and off Broadway will fill their patios with music. Start your weekend early by dining at one of these great restaurants and enjoying live music. You won’t want to miss an opportunity to support local businesses and performers while you enjoy everything that makes Edgewater great! In addition to the performances on the restaurant patios, there will also be one large concert in the St. Ita’s parking lot on August 26. Join us for a celebration of the rich music history of Chicago in true Edgewater style. 

Fifteen restaurants and twenty bands will be participating in this year’s event. The bands will light up the streets of Edgewater with their performances from 6-9pm. You’ll have the opportunity to hear everything from Jazz and Blues to American classics. The goal of this year’s event is to get more people to dine out at local restaurants, while supporting the musicians. The Chamber wants to bring music to every corner of the community, on and off Broadway! We are committed to helping our local businesses and performers bounce back better than ever. We invite you to dine at different participating restaurants every Friday night in August and be a part of the action!

People are encouraged to choose a location to enjoy a performance with their meal or mix things up by grabbing a cocktail to start things off at one location and working up to dessert at a final one! Music carries from block to block and may even be enjoyed by those who order their meal for takeout and listen from their own backyards.

Help us keep up the momentum for supporting local restaurants and artists! All performances will be free of charge, but restaurant reservations are recommended.
