Chicago Auto Show returns to McCormick Place

Coronavirus

CHICAGO — The Chicago Auto Show is officially making its comeback from the COVID-19 pandemic.

A special edition of the show kicked off Thursday and runs through Monday at McCormick Place, 2301 S King Drive.

For the first time, the show will feature both indoor and outdoor displays.

It’s been more than a year and a half since the last Chicago Auto Show. The event is usually 10 days long in February and has been a mainstay in Chicago for more than 100 years.

“This is going to the best Chicago Auto Show yet,” Governor JB Pritzker said Thursday night.

New this year outside McCormick Place on Indiana is a Chicago Auto Show street festival with music, food trucks and a lineup of vehicles to test drive along with new test track experiences. 

“With the street fest, we’ve created a nighttime entertainment option for everyone,” said Mark Bilek, Director of Communications Chicago Auto Show.

The street festival wraps up Thursday at 10 p.m. The auto show runs through Monday.
