Chicago Event Submission

Thank you for your interest in submitting to the Choose Chicago Leisure Events Calendar! Because it serves visitors to Chicago, we post Chicago events that have a larger draw and will encourage visitation. We do not post the following:
  • Happy hours
  • Dining specials
  • Retail sales
  • Job/education/health fairs
  • Networking events
  • Fundraisers/benefits/galas
  • Lectures/classes/workshops/book signings
  • Film screenings (unless tied to a film festival)
  • Casting calls/auditions
  • Industry conferences or meetings (unless booked through Choose Chicago, then they automatically appear on our Convention Calendar)
  • Permanent exhibitions/tours
  • Suburban events
  • Due to the volume of concerts in Chicago, we only post concerts at venues with capacities of 900+.
Also note that due to the volume of requests we receive, we may be unable to post your event in time if you're submitting less than six weeks of your event date. Once your event is posted, we'll email you the link to our calendar listing.

If your event meets our requirements, please fill out this form. Thank you!
