Navy Pier Group Quinceañera Concert
July 15, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Navy Pier is celebrating the quinceañeras of young ladies throughout the Chicagoland area with free professional group photos on the 15th of July. Navy Pier has teamed up with the National Museum of Mexican Art to host a photo shoot for 15-year-old birthday girls on the base of the Pier’s Wave Wall staircase on the South Dock against the backdrop of the Centennial Wheel. Local young ladies are invited to gather at the Pier in their finest quinceañera dresses for a “class photo” along the lakefront with others celebrating the special milestone.
Sones de México Ensemble will celebrate along with them by performing a concert at 2:30 (after the photo shoot) on the brand new Polk Bros. Performance Lawn Stage at the entrance to the pier.
A popular Latin American tradition, quinceañera is a celebration of a girl’s coming of age, marking the transition from childhood to young adulthood in the Latin American culture. As a mission-driven cultural district, Navy Pier is proud to celebrate diversity and inclusion of people from all walks of life with free, year-round programs and offerings such as these.
Admission is free and open to the public.
