Greetings. Is there one venue that Chikara utilized for live events - or were there several? Is there a list? Thanks for advising on this.
CHIKARA was based in the Philadelphia area and I believe their most common venue was The Wrestling Factory. But CHIKARA has also done shows in many other US states (I attended CHIKARA shows in two different venues in Chicago,) Canada, and they have made multiple trips to the UK.
But if you are looking for one past CHIKARA venue for your fed, I would say The Wrestling Factory.

Cagematch is a great resource. They ran The Wrestle Factory a lot once they had access to it. The ECW Arena & Easton had a lot of their big shows like King of Trios almost like their Omni or MSG.
I have a lot of great memories from Chikara shows over the years including meeting Jim, Todd, Kirk, and Mike for the first time. I didn’t even think about it until this thread but if you include the 3 shows of a Trios weekend, I probably attended 20-30 shows over the years in 7 different states (VA, NC, MD, PA, NJ, FLA, and IL).

I've been to 42 shows between 2009 to 2019 if you count King of Trios as three nights.
As everyone said, Cagematch is the best resource. Some years they never left PA, others they were all over the country. They even had shows in the UK, Germany, and Japan. If you're running a fed and want to use the same buildings they ran, you have tons of options.
