Submit your Chicago event
With the current environment, we’re happy to share that Choose Chicago is accepting submissions for more events than ever. Throughout 2020, we’ll feature virtual events, Chicagoland area suburban events, classes/workshops, and concerts at music venues of any size.
Please note: Virtual events are performances and other cultural activities that are live streamed at a future date and time. The host of the virtual event must have the necessary permissions to present the content. Examples of virtual events include musical performances, theatre performances, cooking demonstrations, classes, and tours.
While we do not publish on-demand/recorded events on our events calendar, we are happy to consider them for our Virtual Tours and Digital Experiences page. To submit content for consideration, please send full details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the volume of requests we receive, we may be unable to post your event in time if you’re submitting less than two days of your event date. Once your event is posted, we’ll email you the link to the event in our calendar.
We do not post the following:
- Happy hours
- Dining specials
- Retail sales
- Job/education/health fairs
- Networking events
- Film screenings (unless tied to a film festival)
- Casting calls/auditions
- Industry conferences or meetings
- Permanent exhibitions/tours
- Suburban events (up to 50 miles outside Chicago)
