Whether you are looking for a family outing, or a night-on-the-town theater experience, Elgin offers a wide variety of upcoming arts, theater, live entertainment and special events at various city-owned venues throughout the city. A new web-based calendar, www.elginartscentral.com, is now available that will provide an easy way for residents and visitors to find out about upcoming city-sponsored special events, theater and arts activities.
The website contains calendars that list upcoming Hemmens Cultural Center season of shows, plays and art exhibits at the Elgin Art Showcase, and festival and events and festivals put on by the City’s Special Events Department. This new website will make it easier for residents and visitors to find out the many options they have for fun and entertainment provided by the city, and provides links to purchase tickets for individual events.
Although this calendar lists all city-sponsored events, residents are reminded that there are many additional cultural activities going on in the city every weekend, hosted by many other organizations, such as Gail Borden Public Library, Elgin Community College and the Downtown Neighborhood Association and Elgin Area Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
