Ravinia and Your Library: Request Free Lawn Passes 

The Arlington Heights Memorial Library is thrilled to be partnering this summer with Ravinia Festival’s Words & Music outreach program, providing a limited number of Ravinia lawn passes to Arlington Heights Memorial Library cardholders.  

Any resident of Arlington Heights, 18 years of age or older, who has a valid Arlington Heights Memorial Library card, may sign up for the lottery to be entered into a drawing to receive two free Words & Music lawn passes to a single show.   

How to request tickets: 

  • A limited number of physical tickets are available to Arlington Heights Memorial Library cardholders through a random lottery that will be open for sign-up for 48 hours only. 

  • Sign-ups begin online on at ahml.info starting at 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 9, and will remain open for 48 hours.  Please note that sign-ups will end at 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 11. 

  • Sign up anytime in that 48-hour window to be considered for the ticket lottery.
