Pokémon GO Fest 2018 And Safari Zone 2018 Announced

Pokemon Go Will Bring Back Pokemon Go Fest This Summer

Pokemon GO Summer Tour 2018 coming to Europe and North America in June/July

That will be followed by the second annual Pokemon Go Fest, which will take place in Chicago's Lincoln Park on July 14-15. According to an announcement on the popular mobile augmented reality game's website, this year's festivities will take place in Lincoln Park on July 14 and 15, and will include "a 1.8-mile walking course" that is meant to have "exclusive activities for Trainers of all ages".

Single-day tickets will go on sale May 11 for $20 each.

In a press release announcing the event, Niantic CEO John Hanke acknowledged last year's shortcomings while pointing to a number of other successful events.

After a disastrous inaugural event past year in Chicago, Niantic has announced plans to bring Pokémon GO Fest back to the city this summer July 14 and 15, this time at Lincoln Park. This year's Pokemon Go Fest will take place over two days and seems to be more spread out to minimize the cell network overloads that plagued last year's event. Safari Zone events will also return to Europe and Asia this summer. As of the time of this writing, it's unknown what special offers or Pokemon will be made available to attendees, however, Niantic did say that the event will "offer a unique, immersive play experience unseen anywhere else".

Together with the city of Dortmund, Niantic will host an event from June 30 to July 1 in the Westfalenpark.

In addition, the next few Community Day dates have been revealed. The open event will include activities throughout Dortmund. Unlike the Chicago event, Dortmund's will be free. They will now be happy to know that Niantic has confirmed that the Pokemon Go Fest will be headed back to Chicago this summer.
