April Events in Chicago

There may be a nip in the air, but the city doesn't slow over the chilly winter and spring months.

Among February's premiere events are Chicago Restaurant Week (through February 8) and Chicago Theatre Week (February 8-18). Chicago Restaurant Week features special prix fixe menus at some of the city's favorite and most acclaimed eateries, while Chicago Theatre Week celebrates Chicago’s world-class theater scene, with more than 120 productions at discounted prices. For the first time in Restaurant Week's 11-year history, the event is being extended four days to coincide with the opening weekend of Theatre Week, giving visitors and residents the unprecedented opportunity to combine dinner and a show at an incredible price.

Chicago's Chinese New Year Celebration (February 16-March 4) is another unmissable February event. The city becomes a hive of activity, with happenings that spotlight the Year of the Dog. With one of the largest Chinatowns in North America, Chicago is home to a vibrant Chinese community that enthusiastically celebrates its rich cultural traditions—and welcomes visitors to celebrate with them.
