Lions Clubs International Convention Chicago 2017 – 100th Anniversary

Lions get ready to celebrate your Centennial in the place where it all began! Lions Clubs International is planning a magnificent celebration of Lions and for Lions in Chicago. Highlights of the many activities scheduled throughout convention week include the three plenary sessions, the festive International Parade of Nations, thought provoking guest speakers, a spectacular international show, and the installation of our 2017-2018 International President.

Chicago is a perfect setting for you and your fellow Lions, Lionesses and Leos to come together in “The City Where It All Began.” Located on the banks of Lake Michigan, the Windy City is one of the top convention destinations in the United States. Its unique history, Midwestern hospitality, gourmet restaurants, colossal skyscrapers, and world-class shopping are just a few of the reasons why Chicago has something for everyone.

The Chicago convention also offers a unique opportunity for you to visit LCI’s International Headquarters in Oak Brook, just 30 minutes west of the city, where you will be able to take a self-guided tour of headquarters, get your picture taken, and meet our many staff members who will be there to welcome you.
