CHICAGO EVENTS

In Chicago, we treat fun like a full time job. And there are more than enough enticing Chicago events to keep you and your family busy all season long.

Spring is the perfect time to visit the city — colorful scenery and bright sunshine mixed with cool temperatures make Chicago a popular destination to enjoy events both indoors and out.

Popular March events include the annual St. Patrick's Day Downtown Parade & River Dyeing, the Chicago Flower & Garden Show at Navy Pier and the citywide Chicago Improv Festival taking stage in comedy clubs and theaters all across the neighborhoods.

In April, Chicago gears up for opening day for its two baseball team, the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox. For more variety, those with an artful eye can check out the Chicago International Art, Antique and Jewelry Show at Navy Pier, while pop culture fanatics can geek out to the C2E2: Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo.

The events calendar in May includes some heavy hitters on the creative front with CIMMfest: The Chicago International Movies & Music Festival and the Chicago Humanities Festival’s spring program, Stages, Sights & Sounds. The month also kicks off the start of Chicago’s many neighborhood festivals — from cultural festivities such as Cinco de Mayo Festival in Little Village and Mayfest in Lincoln Square to gatherings for art, music and food such as the Festival del Taco, Millennium Art Festival and the Do Division Street Fest & Sidewalk Sale.

Every day is jam packed with things to see and do in Chicago — search our Events Calendar below to find out what’s in store during your specific dates.
