Chicago has a very strong, very active Doctor Who fan community....and we're here to help make it happen.

The  Chicago Doctor Who Meetup celebrates both new and classic Doctor Who through screenings and social events, encouraging cosplay, writing, and other activities. On November 23rd, 2013, 250 Meetup members attended the live 50th-anniversary screening of Day of the Doctor. We hold monthly events at a variety of sites around the city of Chicago, and we also plan other events like panels for C2E2. Our Meetup philosophy is simple: we are a grassroots, nonprofit community that serves as ambassadors for Doctor Who fandom, and we hold inclusive, affordable, and accessible events for our members.

But we can't do this without resources - Patreon fees are used towards
  • Paying our monthly Meetup.com hosting bill
  • Subscribing to Britbox for access to episodes
  • Developing other resources to keep our Meetups free and accessible
  • Developing resources and incentives to encourage volunteer Meetup organizers.

We're not a "for fans by fans" organization - that's way too gatekeeper-ish for our tastes. Anyone who enjoys Doctor Who should be able to participate, and we work hard on events that do so. But it comes at some cost, and we encourage members who want to be more supportive to sponsor us on Patreon.

Thanks!
