WhiskyFest Chicago and Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest 2020 Postponed

With the novel coronavirus affecting communities across the country, this is a time of uncertainty for many. On March 12, Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker ordered all events with 1,000 people or more to be canceled for 30 days. This includes WhiskyFest Chicago, originally scheduled for March 27. The event has been rescheduled for December 11, to be held at the Hyatt Regency. All existing general admission and VIP tickets will be honored.

In addition, Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest, which was originally scheduled for April 3-4 in Hollywood, Florida, will be postponed until a later date, to be confirmed soon.

We will bring you more information about both events, exhibitors, and other details soon. Rest assured that there will be plenty of fantastic whisky to enjoy, and great friends to toast.

We appreciate the understanding of ticketholders and exhibitors during this time, and urge you all to take precautions to stay safe. If you have any questions, contact the WhiskyFest team at whiskyfest@whiskyadvocate.com.
