Free Passes To Chicago Toy & Game Fair Coming November 19 & 20th

ChiTag 2010

We had a blast at ChiTag, the Chicago Toy and Game Fair, last year and wouldn't miss it for anything!   Check out some of our prior coverage here.   It's coming around again on November 19 & 20 at Chicago’s Navy Pier.

ChiTag is the largest public toy and game fair in the U.S.   It's open to everyone, not just retailers, and you can preview, play with and best of all...purchase the hottest new toys and games.   Kick-off your holiday shopping early and easy.   It's fun to meet the actual inventors of toys and games on exhibit at the Fair and buy right from the source.
There's lots to do for the whole family, as if playing with the hottest new toys and games isn't enough.   There's live stage entertainment, free tournaments and contests, a Star Wars Breakfast, giant-sized interactive toys and games, and costumed characters roaming the Fair.


Check out the Young Inventor Challenge. Chicago kids from 6-18 will exhibit their original toy or game invention and compete for fantastic prizes. Registration closed as of October 31st, but it will be fascinating to see what the kids have created.  Admission:  $10/adult; $5/children; Free for ages 3 & under For more details check out ChiTag's main site.

ChiIL Mama is giving away a free FAMILY WEEKEND PASS every Friday until ChiTag starts-that's 3 lucky winners who can take their whole families to 2 days of toy and game bliss!  

Enter any time from now through noon Nov. 18th.   Enter through midnight today and the 11th and we'll announce winners Saturday.   Enter through noon the 18th and we'll announce the final winner at noon on Friday, so you can get to the fest the 19th & 20th.   We'll pick winners the 4th, 11th & 18th and all prior entries stay in for the following week.   

You can enter multiple times with each documented social media share.   So enter like we vote in Chi, IL...early and often.   Good luck! 

Of course, all our readers are winners, so even if you aren't one of the big 3-free family weekend pass winners, we have printable discount coupons for you.   Come out and play and make this a November to remember for the whole family!


  1. I'd like to enter to win please! I didn't see a link for an entry form.

  2. Sorry about that! Techno glitch. The form was there and then vanished into oblivion on publication. Should be all good now. Best news is we even updated it and now have tickets for Shrek the Musical, too, as of today. You can also enter for all the Beat Kitchen concerts throughout Nov. and Dec. and of course ChiTAG. Spread the word for additional entries/chances to win. Thanks for the heads up about the form and good luck. Check back early and often :).
