Imagine this, you’re sitting in a beach lounge area with the cool breeze from Lake Michigan moving your hair and the fresh May sun basking your skin as summer starts to arrive. The settle chatter of those around you and the background music fills your ears. Reaching for your glass of your favorite Chicago made bourbon just to take a small sip of enjoyment and contemplating what’s going to be the next whiskey you’re trying. All of your friends arrive after retrieving their beverages and cocktails and help to make your next choice in drink while you’re just enjoying the beautiful view of the city. It’s relaxing yet exciting. All you can think about it “This is the life”. Now doesn’t this sound like a great weekend event? You can enjoy it yourself by attending Whiskey Festival on the Beach!

It can even be enjoyable for those who don’t drink whiskey as well! With a large variety of choices to pick from, you are bound to find a beverage of your liking. It’s a great setting for those wanting to try something new for the fun of it and those who have a lot of knowledge in the dark liquor beverages. This Whiskey Festival is not like your standard trip to Binnys. 


Whiskey Festival on the Beach is an adult event in Chicago that takes place at North Avenue’s Shore Club venue. During the 3-hour event, you get to enjoy the many whiskeys that are brought to you by our various Chicago land vendors. Each having a different taste than the next.

The fun doesn’t stop at the tastings of bourbon on the beach and gazing at the city.

Bring your friends, whiskey lovers, and family and come have a great time hanging out on the Chicago lakefront. Take lots of pictures— I know you are going to want to remember this event. Surround yourself with the people you love and enjoy yourself, let loose, and have fun! 


I don’t know about you, but as a broke college student, I’m not exactly a “whiskey connoisseur”. Part of the reason why is because I know nothing about it and have never tried a whiskey brand that I truly enjoyed drinking. If you’re anything like me, and whiskey isn’t necessarily something you know like the back of your hand, this is the perfect opportunity to jump out of your comfort zone and try new things! I’m thinking you’re not going to regret it. 


If you actually are a whiskey connoisseur, this event is absolutely perfect for you. With a variety of whiskeys to choose from, you are guaranteed to not only find your favorite whiskey, but to also find others you may have never heard of before. How many drinks are you excited to try?


With a variety of different vendors, both local and nationwide, you will have the world of whiskey at your fingertips! Is whiskey not your drink of choice? No problem! There will also be multiple different kinds of bourbons and scotches to choose from. This provides ample opportunities to find a good summer drink. 


Take advantage of the beautiful late summer Chicago weather by hanging with your friends at the beach. Lake Michigan never gets old. Don’t forget that soon we’ll be back in freezing weather! We’ll miss the opportunities that we had to have fun with our friends and enjoy the sun. 


Make sure that you photograph your favorite finds and the memories. Tag your photos with #RiverNorthFests for a chance to win our Photo Contest! We select the winners after the fest. Have fun and let loose on the beach with your friends, you deserve it!
