CHICAGO — The famed Chicago Auto Show will return this July.
The auto show — the largest event of its kind in the United States — be the first major convention for Chicago since the coronavirus pandemic came to the city in spring 2020. The event is set for July 15-19 at McCormick Place, 2301 S. King Drive.
Tickets for the Chicago Auto Show will cost $13 for adults, $8 for people 62 and older and $8 for children 7-12. Admission is free for children 6 and younger if they have a paying adult with them.
The auto show was announced in a Tuesday morning tweet from Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
Officials announced only last week they’d allow conventions again as new coronavirus cases drop and vaccinations are available to everyone 16 and older. Large indoor venues can now operate at the lesser of 25 percent of 250 people. Meetings, conferences and conventions are allowed within those rules.
