If you’ve forgotten what a nice car looks like because most of the city’s cars are covered in snow and ice then check out the one million square feet of vehicles on display at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show to find out which wheels you’ll be driving this summer.
Being the largest auto show along with being the most presented in the world, the Chicago Auto Show comes with the perks of some great debuts and otherworldly concept vehicles. Whether it be the evolution of the popular Audi A4, the ever-Italian Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, the first-ever Land Rover convertible, or the retro yet futuristic Mazda SEMA MX-5 Speedster, the Chicago Auto Show has something for every car fan.
For hard-core fans just seeing the almost 1,000 vehicles are enough, but sometimes you need an added element to appeal to the non-aficionado. You can test drive cars from Toyota, Jeep, Fiat, and more. In addition, some of your favorite celebrities we’ll be paying a visit. You can get autographs from former Chicago Bulls coach Bill Cartwright, former Chicago Blackhawk Dennis Savard, Chicago Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo, and even catch a live performance from Doug E. Fresh. There will also be special days of activities like Family Day, a Women’s Day, and Hispanic Heritage Day all filled with special activities and discounts.
The Chicago Auto Show runs from Feb. 13 – 21 at McCormick Place located at 2301 S. Lake Shore Dr. Admission is $12 for adults, $7 for seniors age 62 and older and children ages 7 – 12 and free for all children ages 6 and under. You can $5 off an adult admission when you bring in three canned goods to the show on Feb. 17–19. For more information visit chicagoautoshow.com.
