20th Anniversary

Join jumpers from all over the world as they gather to celebrate blue skies, good times, and great friendships at Skydive Chicago’s annual Summerfest. With a roster of first-class organizers in every discipline, a fleet of aircraft, nightly parties, events, food, and live music, Summerfest isn’t just a boogie: it’s an experience.

This year, the “Boogie of All Boogies” continues its tradition of badassery: days in the sky with some of the sport’s most elite will be capped off with evenings at the Tiki Bar, featuring Eat Up!’s incredible nightly menu, and a full-bar. A slue of activities and live entertainment, including some classic favorites like Sip’N’Paint, Chugging Contest, and Full-on Foosball will be back by popular demand. Casey McGrath’s Fiddlerock also returns with its celebrated entourage of fire, poi, and fiber-optic spinners. You are going to love the new games in store like the Newly Wed Game: Summerfest style, and a Build Your Own Boat Race! DJ Rook will cap off this epic ten-day skydiving spree by spinning through the night at the boogie’s biggest theme party yet, Roaring 20s style for the Summerfest 20th Anniversary.
