The daylong event at McCormick Place is presented by Meet Chicago Northwest (MCNW) and will give attendees the chance to experience some of the many fun and adventurous activities in Chicago’s own backyard, while exploring the largest auto show in North America.

The Chicago Auto Show’s Family Day is a popular tradition that draws in attendees from the projected 35,000 guests attending the show’s final day.

In addition, MCNW is partnering with member community Elk Grove Village to showcase the “Makers Wanted” No. 6 Ford Mustang, which NASCAR Cup Series Champion Brad Keselowski will drive in the NASCAR Chicago Street Race this summer. The Village-sponsored race car will be on the Family Day floor for photo opportunities throughout the event. The “Makers Wanted” race car markets the six square-mile Elk Grove Village Business Park – the largest industrial park in North America.
