Chicago’s “Skateworld” skate show is coming to Chicago, and it’s not going to be a skater show.
Instead, the show will be a live entertainment experience that features skaters, DJs, performers and other entertainment.
The event, which will be held on Saturday, May 15 at McCormick Place, will be part of the sixth annual Chicago Expo.
“This is an incredibly important time for us,” said Chicago Expo Vice President of Events and Entertainment Dan McWilliams.
“The Skateworld experience will be like nothing else we have ever hosted.
It will be the most fun you will have on a skate day, and you will feel like you are part of something special.”
Skateboarding has always been an integral part of our culture and the Chicago Exposition is a great way for us to showcase skateboarding to the world,” he added.”
Chicago Exposition attendees will be able to take part in all-day events including: food, fun activities and more,” McWilliams added.
Tickets for the Chicago Expo are available now, and the first 10,000 people will get a special VIP wristband, which includes access to all of the show and a ticket to the Skate World event.
Tickets are $55 for adults, $30 for seniors, $15 for kids, and $5 for students.
Tickets are also available for $20 for children ages 6-12, $10 for kids ages 5-12 and $10.
The VIP wristbands are not valid for any of the regular Skate world events.
The Chicago Expiration is May 15, the day the Chicago Roller Derby Association takes the field for its final regular season game, and this is not the first time that the Chicago roller derby association has made an appearance at Chicago’s Expo.
In 2008, the Chicago derby had its first year-end skate show, and in 2009, the roller derby had a skate show for the first year of its “Chicago Summer Olympics” event.
