Navy Pier Winter WonderFest

Navy Pier is just as wonderful in the winter as it is in the summer. You can pull right in, park your car in the indoor lot, and enjoy a day jam-packed with activities, dining, shopping, and fun — without having to endure the chilly weather outdoors. For the 17th year in a row, families from near and far will head to Navy Pier to celebrate the season minus the gloves, hat and mittens at Winter WonderFest (open December 1, 2017-January 7, 2018).
