Be a part of the treasured tradition of Venetian Night! The Chicago Yachting Association and the Italian Human Relations Foundation of Chicago together with the Chicago Harbors are excited to invite you to 2024 Venetian Night: A Salute to Italy as we light up the lakefront this summer!

For the first time in decades, Venetian Night is returning to Monroe Harbor!

We’ll party on and off the water as an incredible parade of illuminated boats takes over Chicago’s magnificent skyline! The entertainment begins when the sun sets at 9:00 p.m. and it just gets hotter as the night goes on!

We are limiting entries to the first 40 boats. All entries will be encouraged to decorate and light up their boats and compete for top prizes awarded by the judges. Prizes will be awarded by division with top prizes being $1,500, $1,000, and $500 off next year’s mooring fee!

Monroe Harbor dockage for set-up on day of parade included in entry. Entry fee is $50.
