What is Summerfest?

Skydive Chicago’s annual boogie called Summerfest continues to grow with each passing year and this summer is without a doubt going to be unreal. Summerfest 2018 will bring jumpers from all over the world together and is set to pave the way for the future of all that is boogie awesomeness.  Skydive Chicago invites you to join us this July to celebrate blue skies, great friends, and history in the making. As always, there will be plenty of aircraft to choose from, world class organizers for all levels and disciplines, and mega parties to keep you moving all day and night. Your only disappointment would be missing this year’s event!
