Chicago Toy & Game Fair returns to Navy Pier

Whether you’re checking out the best of Santa’s picks a little early or simply taking advantage of a socially acceptable kiddo-racetrack ride, you’ll want to schedule the Chicago Toy& Game Fair in your calendar with your boldest crayon.

The ChiTAG started in 2003 by game designer Mary Couzin to support inventors. Over the years, it’s become a destination event for industry professionals and toy enthusiasts alike, and with good reason: the biggest names in toys are there with products for testing.

The event also hosts the dream-worthy Star Wars luncheon, which includes character photo ops, prizes and giveaways, Saturday admission to the fair, and a themed buffet lunch.

This year, ChiTAG is partnering with Lekotek/AblePlay to open the fair an hour earlier, allowing free admission entry for children with special needs and their families.
