There is nothing that solidifies that it is summertime in Chicago more than taking a stroll through Wrigleyville. Stepping up to Wrigley Field you find yourself surrounded by amazing restaurants and bars, music venues, and of course the energy and excitement of the Chicago Cubs. There is no shortage of entertainment in Wrigleyville but one of the best elements of the neighborhood is the open air backyard of Wrigley Field at Gallagher Way. With countless events taking place year round for travelers to take advantage of Summer gives Gallagher Way its true time to shine (literally). You’ll want to make sure you check out some of these awesome (and FREE!) events taking place in the heart of Wrigleyville at Gallagher Way this summer.
Enjoy Movie Night Under the Stars
On select Wednesday nights at Gallagher Way movies play drive-in style on the massive jumbo screen right outside of the stadium.

Perfect for a date night or family outing, Gallagher Way has an awesome lineup of summer films that anyone can enjoy!

Enjoy a Game Day Up Close and Personal
I mean sure, if you can’t get your hands on any game tickets or you can always watch the game on home. But why would you do that when you can watch the game…right outside of the game! Game Days at Gallagher Way are always exciting, fun, and alive with different ways to enjoy Wrigleyville and the Chicago Cubs. Restaurants and bars have extended hours so you can party all game-day long and you can even check out the 2016 World Series Trophy!
