Chicagoween Description

Chicagoween - Circus | Farmer's Market | Holiday Event in Chicago.

Put on in Chicago every October, Chicagoween includes a series of Halloween-themed events throughout the city, and largely includes family friendly festivities for children and the child in all of us.

The Daley Plaza gets temporarily renamed during Chicagoween to something in line with the holiday – think Pumpkin Plaza of Franken Plaza – where a Haunted Village is set up for pumpkin decorating, spooky storytelling, trick-or-treating, and more to thrill and chill.

Each day of Chicagoween, which normally starts on October 15th and runs till the end of the month, also features performances by high flying aerial entertainers several times throughout the day in the Plaza.

Free tickets to local movie screenings are also usually given away during Chicagoween, and kids can join in the fun by marching in costume as part of The State Street Halloween Happening Parade that normally takes place on October 23rd.

Free pumpkin decorating in Daley Plaza is offered on Saturdays and Sundays during Chicagoween, and several other city sites like Navy Pier (Navy Fear) also put on similar activities for all.

Most of the Chicagoween events are free, though some do charge admission. Chicagoween admission is rarely more than $8, however, and more often around $3.
