2021 Chicago Golf Show canceled due to pandemic
The Chicago Golf Show Wednesday announced the 2021 event has been canceled because of ongoing issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. The three-day show, which typically attracts 15,000 to 20,000 attendees, will return Feb. 25 to 27, 2022, according to show organizers.
"The Chicago Golf Show deeply regrets not being able to have the Show in 2021," said Chicago-based show organizer Tom Corcoran. "Golf has had a great year in spite of the pandemic and we had been looking forward to helping keep golf's momentum going as we approach next season."
Typically, the show takes place the last weekend in February. For fans of the event, the cancellation means no free golf promotion, no free lessons courtesy of the Illinois PGA, no Long Putt contest and no low-price deals on equipment, apparel, travel and more.
The 2021 event would have been the 38th consecutive year for the show at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. The 2020 show concluded March 1 shortly before the closure of the convention center, which has been dark since mid-March.
