Extra Life Chicago Gaming Convention

Extra Life is a charitable program of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. It is a nationwide movement bringing together people who share a love of video, console, and tabletop games.

Extra Life Chicago Gaming Convention (ELCGC) is a brand new event designed to bring the gaming community in Chicago together and is the newest charity gaming convention in the area. ELCGC is a place to play games, support local businesses & performers, meet new friends, cosplay as your favorite character and hear from expert panelists. Participating in the Extra Life Chicago Gaming Convention looks different for every person and organization – but the mission stays the same; you game for every child.

Early Bird ticket pricing ends July 30th!
