The 35th annual Cubs Convention will take place January 17-19, 2020, and here’s all the info you’ll need to get passes and/or hotel rooms at the Sheraton Grand Chicago for the event. There will be some events at the Loews Chicago Hotel, and a couple of new events this year.
Passes will go on sale to the general public Friday, November 1, at noon CT. Fans have the opportunity to purchase all-access weekend passes, hotel packages and new experience passes. There will also be a Mastercard presale at 10 a.m. CT Friday, two hours before the general sale.
The price for all-access weekend passes to the three-day event featuring players, coaches and alumni autograph opportunities, engaging panel sessions and other traditional fan-favorite activities is $125 (plus convenience fees). There’s a limit of four all-access weekend passes per household. They’ll be available online at cubs.com/convention or at 1-800-THE-CUBS.
On Friday, you can also purchase one- and two-night stay hotel packages at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. Those include up to four 2020 Cubs Convention all-access weekend passes, pending availability. Those are available online only at cubs.com/convention.
There are two new “experiences” planned for this year’s convention which you can purchase separately from the all-access convention pass. The all-access pass includes these new “experiences.”
On Saturday, January 18, at the Loews Chicago Hotel the Cubs will host a live audience for the tapings of several new videos for the Cubs YouTube channel, including a special edition of “Bae vs. Ballplayer.” In addition to being a part of the live audience, attendees will be able to enjoy interactive experiences and more at the Loews Chicago Hotel. Passes are available for $40 and include access to the Wright and Sullivan Ballrooms at the Loews Chicago Hotel. There is a limit of six Saturday Loews Experience passes per household. Passes will be available at cubs.com/convention or 1-800-THE-CUBS. These passes do NOT include access to any Cubs Convention activities or experiences at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.
On Sunday, January 19, the whole family is invited for family-friendly fun at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. From face painting and inflatables to games and activities with Clark the Cub, the Sunday Family Experience offers exciting festivities the whole family will enjoy. Individual passes start at $25 and include access to activities and experiences available in the Sheraton Grand Chicago ballroom located on the fourth level. There is a limit of six Sunday Family Experience passes per household. Again, you can get these at cubs.com/convention, or call 1-800-THE-CUBS for more information including bundle packaging pricing for Sunday Family Experience passes. Note that this pass does NOT include access to any other Cubs Convention panels, autograph signings or activities at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.
A portion of the proceeds from the 2020 Cubs Convention benefits the Cubs Charities’ Diamond Project which aims to expand baseball and softball opportunities for all Chicago children and youth by engaging kids with skilled coaches, and quality programming and providing safe and accessible places to play the game. To date, Cubs Convention has raised more than $4.5 million for Cubs Charities.
