Welcome to the official 2019 Chicago AYF Sr. Olympics website!

The Chicago “Ararat” Chapter is excited to host the 2019 Sr. Olympics as we expect 3,000 visitors from the U.S. and Canada to come through the Windy City. Since Sept. 2018, we’ve been working hard for one thing – that this weekend gives you the best experience in Olympics history: fraternal fun, athletics, old and new friends, parties, new events and memories. We have a great city, an amazing hotel, prime athletic facilities, an uncle called Amo, comics, a “Little Armenia” we have in store, and an unsurpassable entertainment lineup!

Sportsmanship and fraternalism are two very important pillars of our organization, so seniors, aim for the gold! But most importantly, enjoy participating in the games as this is your time to shine & truly experience what Sr. Olympics is all about!

Chi-town is an easy flight from the West Coast, Canada, the South and Eastern region. We’re a quick fly-in to O’Hare Airport. Drive or hop a flight Thursday to see the city. Take a downtown tour. Experience fine dining and “me” time. See Vahe Berberian in comedic action.

Be right in the center of it. Put your finger on the pulse of everything Armenian, everything athletic, everything fraternal, everything worth celebrating in our culture. Come to Chicago – and meet us in the middle!
