Four big changes will affect who is inside Millennium Park at certain hours, per Chicago Mayor Lightfoot's direction. These changes are Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of every week.

First, teen curfew will now be 10 pm city wide.


Beginning at 6 pm through the park's closing (11 pm) anyone under the age of 18 mut be accompanied by adult who is 21+.

Moving forward, all visitors of the park will be subject to bag check and a wand screening.

After 6 pm, Thursday through Sunday, guests may be asked to present an approved form of identification for proof of age.
