Chicago, IL

August 2-3, 2019

Join us for a weekend in Chicago! On Friday night, join us for informal cocktails at Three Dots and a Dash. On Saturday, eat breakfast with us at Wildberry Pancakes & Cafe. We’ll spend the afternoon exploring the city, then head to Navy Pier for dinner and a night boat cruise to see the rich architecture of Chicago and view fireworks from the water.

If you would like to take the boat cruise with us, you must purchase your own tickets by clicking here. Make sure you book a ticket for August 3, 2019 at 9:00PM, departing from Navy Pier. Expert AuPair will reimburse you for the cost of your ticket after the boat cruise, so make sure to save your receipt and share it with us.

If you are attending the event from out of town, please email to let us know. We will send you an official invitation via email. We have included information to help you get to and navigate Chicago below, along with a list of hostels and hotels in the area.

We will provide plenty of suggestions of fun activities to attend with Expert AuPair’s home office staff, Local Representatives, and fellow au pairs when you’re not attending  our main events. On Saturday, Expert AuPair will cover the cost of your breakfast, but you are expected to cover the cost of your lunch, as we will not hold a lunch event, and dinner at Navy Pier. Navy Pier has food-court style dining with offerings at many price points. Click here to view the different restaurants available at Navy Pier.

Please note, this event is only open to Expert AuPair au pair program participants.
