Welcome to the meetup page for Chicago! If you are interested in Wikipedia or other Wikimedia projects, regardless of your level of experience or involvement, or if you are otherwise involved in with free content you are invited and welcome.
What's going on?
Occasionally interested people (mostly Wikipedia editors) get together at various meeting points around the world to meet each other and have fun. Not only do you get to meet people you contribute with in real life, you also get to share what you know and see another side of people that you would otherwise not see. Overall, a meetup is an excellent opportunity to meet new friends.
We have a meetup invitation list located at WP:Meetup/Chicago/Invite list, which can be used to send mass message invitations for meetups, edit-a-thons, or other notices. Feel free to add yourself there if you'd like to receive future invitations.
Sign up for the Wikimedians of Chicago User Group mailing list here.
Current meetup planning
We most recently got together to celebrate Wikipedia Day. See Wikipedia:Meetup/Chicago 18. There will be an Art+Feminism edit-a-thon at the Glass Curtain Gallery on February 15, 2019. Future meetup ideas for the spring of 2019 include a Chicago history-themed edit-a-thon and a Public Domain Day edit-a-thon. If you have meetup suggestions, comment on our talk page on meta, our mailing list, or our Facebook group!
