The Chicago White Sox have officially canceled SoxFest 2021 due to coronavirus concerns.
The annual winter festival was scheduled to take place on January 22-23, 2021 at McCormick Place in Chicago. It would have been the second year of SoxFest at the new location. The event previously took place at the Hilton Chicago.
