Chicago is known as the toy and game inventing capital of the world, with many of our favorite childhood toys having been (and continue to be) invented, created or discovered here in our City.

For the past decade, toy and game inventors have flocked to our City to the annual Chicago Toy & Game Week in November, which is already a magical time before the holidays, with lights and festivities to encourage kids, friends and families to come out and play.


Adding to the ChiTAG events, Chicago itself is the play destination for both North Americans and international visitors alike putting on a glamorous and exciting week of fun. Be part of the playful atmosphere as the entire City comes alive with play – with a spectacular Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, the Mickey and Minnie Parade, playful culinary delights, amazing shopping, and all the magic and glamour this City offers.
