Popping up in the building’s historic gymnasium known today as Stagg Court, The Track Roller Rink is home to quarterly skate weekends, monthly roller routines, and a playful line-up of four-wheeled activities throughout the year. With a name affectionately paying homage to the running track that rings the top of the iconic space, The Track Roller Rink invites newbies and skilled skaters to lace up for events with flair for the thematic, and nostalgia of a bygone era. Chicago has long held a deep love for skating, and now, The Track Roller Rink offers skating sanctuary in the heart of downtown for locals, visitors, JB skaters, and everyone in between.
