Chicago’s Navy Pier begins phased reopening April 30

CHICAGO—Navy Pier will begin its phased reopening on April 30.

Starting Friday, the public will be able to access some outdoor spaces and attractions at the popular lakefront destination.

In the initial reopening phase, visitors will be able to access:

  • Navy Pier parking garages
  • Polk Bros Park
  • Peoples Energy Welcome Pavilion
  • North and South Docks
  • Pier Park (including some rides and attractions)
  • East End Plaza
  • Tour boats and cruises
  • The new Sable hotel
  • Some restaurants at limited capacity

Hours of operation will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday during the initial reopening phase. Hours may vary by establishment.

Navy Pier chose to temporarily close to the public on Labor Day last year due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

To celebrate reopening, Navy Pier will host a special 10-minute fireworks show every Saturday in May at 9 p.m.

Visitors must bring and wear a face mask at all times and maintain social distancing between other parties while at Navy Pier.

Park rides and attractions will operate at a limited capacity and will be cleaned after each use.
