Summer is hopping at Rosemont! One of the most exciting things taking place this year is the opening of Impact Field and the debut of Rosemont’s new independent baseball team, the Chicago Dogs. Games takes place throughout the summer starting on Friday, May 25.
If you like sporting events, the Dogs aren’t the only team around this summer. The Chicago Bandits, Rosemont’s National Pro Fastpitch team, begin their home season at The Ballpark at Rosemont on 5/31. Some legendary women have played here! For a full listing of home games during the season, visit our Sports pages.
Of course, if you prefer other activities, Rosemont also has you covered. The Spring Fun Fest takes place on 5/12 from 1-6 p.m. at Parkway Bank Park and is designed for families. It includes live entertainment, balloon sculptors, face painting, bounce houses, and petting zoo, and more. Summer in the Park also includes fitness activities, rock concerts and country music concerts weekly, and other fun events.
Concerts and performances from bigger stars take place throughout the summer at Allstate Arena and the Rosemont Theatre, too. Summer highlights include Vance Joy on 5/25, the B96 Summer Bash on 6/23, Chicago and REO Speedwagon on 6/24, the Whitney Houston Show on 8/11, and Jeff Lynne’s ELO on 8/15. Other events include WWE’s Money in the Bank on 6/17.
And if stage shows aren’t really your thing, you still have options in Rosemont.
