Situated along the Vermilion River, Streator proudly promotes itself as a "Quiet Surprise on the Prairie." We invite you to come wander the tree lined streets where you will find the quiet, caring atmosphere of small town America. We are rich in history, architecture and charm, from the noteworthy churches featuring the annual Pipe Dreams organ concerts to the shady paths of the City Park and beautiful Weber House and Garden.
Make memorable moments with family and friends while enjoying activities reminiscent of simpler times such as the July 4th fireworks celebration, Engle Lane community theater, a concert at the beautiful Plumb Pavilion in the city park or vintage cars during the Labor Day Roamer Cruise Night. A small community offering hospitality and good old fashioned fun!
Plumb Pavilion (pictured above) is the latest addition
to the Streator City Park.
