CHICAGO – Chicago’s Navy Pier is continuing its phased reopening with plans to be fully reopened by Memorial Day weekend.

The next phase of the Pier’s reopening will begin on Thursday, which includes restoring public access to indoor areas and the gradual reopening of select businesses.

The Pier was closed to the public from September 8, 2020, to April 30, 2021, to limit the financial impacts of the pandemic on the nonprofit organization and small businesses housed on the Pier. 

The following areas will be open beginning Thursday:

  • Fifth Third Bank Family Pavilion
  • Peoples Energy Welcome Pavilion
  • Polk Bros Park
  • North and South Docks
  • Pier Park (including all rides and attractions)
  • East End Plaza
  • Tour boats and cruises
  • The Sable hotel
  • Select retail shops, restaurants, and parking garages

The Pier will also be launching its annual schedule of free summer arts and cultural programs over the Memorial Day weekend.

Beginning Friday, May 28, the Pier will be changing its hours of operation to extended hours through Labor Day:

  • Sunday to Thursday
    • 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Friday and Saturday
    • 10 a.m. to midnight
