With cities reopening after the shutdown of mass events and festivals, the Auto Show is taking serious precautions to ensure the safety of all attendees.

City officials will shut down Indiana Ave for the duration of the show. This will be the first-ever outdoor activation of the Chicago Auto Show. Camp Jeep and Ram Truck indoor test tracks will be available as well as Subaru’s popular pet adoption event.
