Open House Chicago

October 14, 2023, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Every October, the Chicago Architecture Center is proud to host Open House Chicago—a free public festival that offers self-guided history and architecture trails throughout Chicago, talks and programming, and behind-the-scenes access to architecturally, historically and culturally significant sites across the city.

Open House Chicago remains one of the largest events of its kind in the world. This year, Open House Chicago’s in-person site visits will occur on October 14 and 15. Additional plans for OHC 2023 include the OHC app, virtual programs and special programming.

In 2023 we will highlight more than 20 Chicago neighborhoods, 150 sites, outdoor exploration on themes of neighborhood investment, community engagement, historic preservation and more. You will also find tips and itineraries for exploring shopping, dining and other attractions in each neighborhood.
