Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me! Live in Millennium Park

Thursday, August 9 @ 7:00pm – 9:30pm
Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park 201 East Randolph Street 60601 Chicago , IL

Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me! is WBEZ and NPR’s wildly popular weekly hour-long quiz program. Each week on the radio, listeners and contestants test their knowledge against some of the best and brightest in the news and entertainment world while figuring out what’s real news and what’s made up.

The live tapings at the Chase Bank Auditorium are some of the hottest tickets in town. WWDTM is like the girl (or boy) that everyone wants to ask to prom and there are only so many dance cards to go around. Our solution? A wonderful night on the lawn at Millennium Park with host Peter Sagal and crew! Listeners are invited to bring a blanket and a picnic and to join us at downtown.

This is a classic Chicago event, WWDTM under the stars with a huge crowd - a crowd so large that in 2015, gates closed an hour before the start of the show due to venue capacity!

The park will open at 4:00PM. There is not reserved seating for this event. Seating is first come, first served. Hint: Get there early!

*Security Update* Some important changes have come to Millennium Park this summer. A new security perimeter and bag check will take place for all Jay Pritzker Pavilion events. Please be patient and plan ahead for the Millennium Park Security Perimeter. Entry may be faster for those without bags. Outside alcohol will also be prohibited in the park during this event. Visitors will have additional food and beverage options at various price points available for purchase inside the venue. Subject to bag search at the security perimeter, guests may bring their own food and non-alcoholic beverages to all events at Millennium Park. For more information about the new security measures, including a full list of the prohibited items, visit the “Policies and Regulations” page of the Millennium Park website at millenniumpark.org.
