The Shamrock Shuffle won't take over the Loop, the Chicago Polar Plunge won't splash around North Avenue Beach, and the Chiditarod won't send shopping carts whizzing through West Town. None of these events is canceled—they're just unfolding a bit differently, like many of your favorite things to do in Chicago in March. In addition to a variety of virtual events, you can also put on a mask and visit several of the best Chicago museums this month, including the newly reopened Museum of Contemporary Art and the Chicago History Museum. And if you've managed to snag a ticket to "Immersive Van Gogh" (they're in short supply), the high-tech exhibit is still on display at the Germania Club Building. Celebrate St. Patrick's Day and the arrival of spring with the help of our March 2021 events guide.
