This is an open event for all to enjoy so, if you're nearby, you should be able to wander in and get involved.

Next up is North America, which will see the return of Pokémon GO Fest with a brand new look. The event will take place in Chicago from 14th July - 15th July, offering "a unique, immersive play experience unseen anywhere else that will create a daylong adventure for Trainers". The event will be held in the city’s historic Lincoln Park, with a 1.8-mile walking course that will include exclusive activities for Trainers of all ages. You'll need to book tickets to attend this event - they go on sale 11th May.

Finally, another Safari Zone event will make its way to Yokosuka, Japan later this summer. Further details are yet to shared about this one, but Ninantic says that it will followed by "an exciting schedule for our Trainers across Asia".
