Join us at Navy Pier for the 2nd Annual Chicago Baby Show! It’s the largest baby show in the country for new and expectant families. No other event offers a broader range of brands, education, buying opportunities, and activities. This is a must-attend event if you are planning, expecting, or recently had a child!
About the Show
In its size and quality–but mostly in the mix of all its special features–the Chicago Baby Show is a baby event like no other. And it’s also a great value. Tickets are $30 per family (for 2 adults and up to 4 children), and $20 per individual.
Through a combination of expert speakers (covering gear, parenting tips, safety, etc.), influencers (providing opinions on products and parenting), and entertainers to keep kids happy and engaged, the show’s content provides tremendous value to attendees.
