Come back out and go out back at the North Shore Center in Skokie for a fun and safe outdoor summer concert series in our rear parking lot. With official guidance from the Village of Skokie Health Department, we’ve been approved to hold outdoor concerts throughout the summer. These concerts will provide much-needed support for our local artists and musicians while providing a night of great entertainment to our wonderful supporters. These concerts are sure to be popular; with only 200 spaces available, you’ll want to get your tickets now! More shows expected to be announced soon.
Even if you can’t attend, consider making a donation to our

How Do the Out Back Summer Sessions Work?
Here is an excerpt of series information:
Tickets & Seating
