Chicago is home to North America’s largest auto show. The show has become a Chicago Winter favorite. There is something for everyone. Whether it’s a family outing, girls/guys night out or date night, it’s sure to be a good time.

“Chicago Auto Show fans are in for a treat this year as the 2020 show will offer unfettered access to nearly 1,000 vehicles on display, four indoor test track experiences, three outdoor ride-and-drive opportunities, brand-new engaging displays, interactive activities for people of all ages and a robust lineup of special events throughout the entire show,” said Chicago Auto Show Chairman Tony Guido. “As Chicagoans, we’re lucky to have the nation’s largest auto show right here in our backyard. Plus, it’s a great chance to get out of the house in February, shake off those winter blues and have some fun.”

“This is the second year we’ve partnered with the Chicago Auto Show to bring Chicago Friday Night Flights to one of Chicago’s iconic events,” said David Whitaker, Choose Chicago president & CEO. “Chicago Friday Night Flights has become one of the city’s traditions, celebrating Chicago’s renowned craft beer scene.
