Naper Nights returns this summer to Naper Settlement. The three-weekend outdoor concert series will feature nationally recognized tribute bands.
This year concerts will take place June 17 and 18, July 15 and 16, and August 19 and 20, from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. each night. Concertgoers can bring a lawn chair or blanket to set up a spot to stretch out, eat, drink, and dance along to music throughout the night.
“Naper Nights’ curated band and food line-up combined with the intimate park ambiance of Naper Settlement offers an elevated event experience you can’t get at other festivals in the area,” said Adison Glick, special events team leader at Naper Settlement in a press release.
