The Chicago Toy & Game Fair (CHITAG): 3 Tips to Help You Get the Most Out Of It

How are you planning to kick off the holidays? Come join us for a wonder-inspiring weekend, November 23-24, 2019, at the 17th annual Chicago Toy & Game Fair, the largest toy and game fair open to the public in North America! Come prepared to get the most out of it and ready to rock Navy Pier this year with our survival tips:

  • Arrive early! Doors open at 10 a.m. Beat the crowds by arriving early.
  • Bring a stroller. If you're little ones tend to get tired easily, strollers can help keep you going.
  • Take your time! Don't rush your experience. There is so much to do and see! Make sure you have plenty of time to take it all in. Or come back on Sunday!
