Take a Spin at the Chicago Auto Show


Known as the largest car show in North America, the Chicago Auto Show is back this month for 10 days at McCormick Place. First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show has since been staged more than any other automobile show on the continent. This year marks its 116th edition.

At the show, you’ll find a range of domestic and imported vehicles, automobile accessories and auto-related exhibits, interactive experiences, project cars, and collectable and antique vehicles.


This February, the Chicago Auto Show runs from the 10th to the 19th at the McCormick Place South Building, starting at 10:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. most days. On February 11, the show closes at 6:00 p.m. and on the 18th, it closes at 8:00 p.m.

The show displays the latest designs and developments of a range of vehicle models, including cars, trucks, and electric and concept cars. More than 20 manufacturers across the world come with elaborate, interactive exhibitions that allow guests to get behind the wheel, physically through indoor and outdoor test tracks or virtually. A full list of the vehicles displayed at the Auto Show can be found online.


On the website, there is also a detailed schedule of events, including times for test drives, games, meet and greets, and more.
