Submit your Chicago event
The Choose Chicago events calendar showcases events and shows happening all around the city, including concerts, sports games, festivals, temporary exhibits, live theatre, and more.
We make every attempt to post an event that meets our criteria. 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 before your event date.
We do not post the following:
- Happy hours and bar crawls
- Dining specials
- Retail sales
- Runs/walks and fitness classes
- 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 (more than 25 miles outside Chicago)
- Open mics
- Links to third-party ticket resale sites
- Due to the volume of concerts in Chicago, we only post concerts at venues with capacities of 900+.
If you have any questions about these guidelines or your event submission, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
