Chicago to Host the Democratic National Convention 2024

Chicago will host the 2024 Democratic National Convention, putting the city and its leaders at the center of the national political spotlight next summer. 

Chicago won out over finalists Atlanta and New York. 

“Chicago is a great choice to host the 2024 Democratic National Convention,” President Joe Biden said in a statement. Democrats will gather to showcase our historic progress including building an economy from the middle out and bottom up, not from the top down.”

The convention is scheduled to take place Aug. 19-22 at the United Center, following close on the heels of the annual Air and Water Show, set for Aug. 17-18 in 2024.

“The 2024 Democratic National Convention in Chicago will welcome people from across the nation to an unforgettable event highlighting our party’s vision for lifting up working families and those who too often have been left out and left behind,” Pritzker said in a statement. Our great global city and its diverse communities, unparalleled hospitality, and world renowned venues shows off the best of America and its people represent the heart of our country.”

In July 2022, the state’s top Democrats appeared with labor and business leaders to announce the city’s convention bid, with officials at the time saying the event would infuse $150 million into Illinois’ economy and boost Chicago’s tourism and hospitality industries.
