The Windy city will be hosting a shopping festival complete with deals in order to boost tourism spending.

Chicago will be holding America’s first shopping festival starting 26 August. The Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival will be a 14-day shopping event presented by MasterCard. It will see the city liven up with exclusive shopping offers, hotel packages, culinary events and celebrity appearances. Event organizers hope that the shopping festival will attract more visitors to the Windy City and encourage spending during a time of economic doubt.

The Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival will kick off Friday night with In-Fashion hosting a VIP experience featuring celebrity stylish and TV star, Carson Kressley. The festival concludes on 8 September with Vogue Fashion’s Night Out.
