Buckingham Fountain

The Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain, one of the largest in the world, is located in Grant Park and runs from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, typically from early May through mid-October, depending on weather. While in operation, the Fountain produces a major water display for 20 minutes every hour. During the major display, a center jet shoots water to a height of 150 feet into the air. Major displays begin daily at 9:00 a.m. and continue thereafter, every hour on the hour. Beginning at dusk, a spectacular light and music display accompanies the major display, beginning every hour on the hour for 20 minutes. Each evening, the final major display begins at 10:35 p.m.
