Is This Your First Summerfest?

Well, you can watch our drop zone briefing to get ready for your jumping and your landings. We have a huge landing area.  Make sure to know the zones and our left-handed pattern landing sequence and what obstacles might be there when you’re in the sky.  There’s even an article to read about how to get the most out your Summerfest.  Take a peek and get ready to have some fun!

How To Summerfest

What is Summerfest?

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, a full-bar, and another round of custom-brewed Summerfest beer. A slue of activities and live entertainment, including the annual Film Festival, Magic Show, and Full-On Foosball will be back by popular demand, and Casey McGrath’s Fiddlerock also returns with its celebrated entourage of fire, poi, and fiber-optic spinners. DJ Rook will cap off this epic ten-day skydiving spree by spinning through the night at the boogie’s biggest theme party, yet.

Come be a part of what makes Summerfest the most anticipated boogie of the year.
