Chester’s in Chesterton offers end of summer live music in outdoor lot.

August 19, 2020

Chester’s in Chesterton understands that we are all missing live music, so they decided to open up their parking lot for a socially distanced, “outdoor summer fest’ every weekend through September 6.

Chester’s, one of the newest spots to open up in the Chesterton area, is a bar and restaurant that offers delicious cocktails, Moe’s Mediterranean food, fun theme-filled nights and Sunday brunches. Like all places, Chester’s has had to navigate the Covid waters, and they seem to be adapting well. Chester’s recently added an outdoor patio and decided one of the best things they could do would be to utilize their spacious parking lot.

So…they decided to throw the “Outdoor Summer Fest”! The fest will take place over the next couple Saturdays and then also on Saturday & Sunday September 5 & 6. It includes Moe’s Mediterranean Food Truck, a beer garden, and different bands each weekend. (Be sure to check their facebook page for updates on who is playing). The fest is 21 and over.

Those that came out last Saturday enjoyed music by New Groove & Chicken Dolphin Band. There was plenty of space to spread out, they were able to enjoy the beautiful evening, great music and delicious food and beverages. Give this spot a try. You won’t be disappointed!

Chester’s is located at 791 Indian Boundary Road in Chesterton, IN. Call for more info 219.728.1047 or head to their website at
