Calendar of Events

If I have friends planning a trip to Chicago, this is the Chicago calendar I would want to consult as to what is going on during their time here. Since I couldn’t find one like it, I created a calendar of my own: cultural, music, festival, sporting, arena and other events I find useful or interesting in the Windy City.

Plus the weather!

Thanks!

NOTE: For some professional league sporting events (Chicago Bears, for example) a game link will only show up on this calendar if there are still official (not resale) tickets available as of the time of the calendar posting. You should still check your favorite ticket reseller (StubHub, etc.) to see if tickets are available from those sources.
