Lake County Arts & Entertainment Guide

Art classes, art galleries, Broadway shows and live music await you...

Lake County's arts & entertainment scene is second to none with a rich history and community of artists and artisans. Take a walk through true artistic talent as downtown Waukegan hosts  ArtWauk on the third Saturday of each month. Also in Waukegan, Genesee Theatre provides star power performances from Billboard chart-topping musicians, hilarious stand-up comedians and a plethora of other talented acts. Their box office is now open for late summer/fall 2020 shows.

Due to COVID-19 and with the safety and enjoyment of everyone in mind, select venues have canceled performances. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to the full reopening of activities in the near future like Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire, with Broadway-caliber shows, and Ravinia Festival, renowned as the oldest outdoor festival in the U.S.
We encourage you to check your travel plans before heading out to reconfirm activities.
