Family Fun

Family-Friendly Is the Name of the Game

There is no shortage of kid-friendly activities for your family in Pekin. Pekin Park District Mineral Springs Park is a mecca for fun. Located at the center of town near our famous Pavilion, the park features a beautiful lagoon, fountains, an adaptive playground, skateboard ramps, DragonLand waterpark,  Veterans Memorial ice rink, paddleboats, mini-golf, baseball fields, tennis courts, and more. The park also includes a dog park for your favorite four-legged friends to run around and enjoy.

Pekin Paintball Park features 10 acres of adventure and adrenaline. Six football-field-sized courses set the stage for hours of fun and feature these high-intensity themes like the Call of Duty Firing Range, Fort Pekin, the Wild West, Little Pekin, the Castle, and an Astroturf field!

Visit Sunset Bowling Lanes and Laser Tag if you’ve got a couple of hours to fill. Or grab a pair of skates and hit the ice rink at Veterans Memorial Arena for some winter fun!

Short Description
We started out in Bartonville in the 1980's as the Campus Players. By the 90's we had changed our name to Artistic Community Theatre and relocated to Pekin. We had a theatre in the old Pekin Mall, we also were in the Pekin Park Pavilion. We have been a vagabond troupe since the early 2000's. Performing quality shows around the community at different location.
We are pleased to announce that in the spring of 2022 we were able to acquire the use of a building that is being renovated into an intimate cabaret style performance space! Our little theatre located at 407 Court Street in downtown Pekin, will be a jewel for the community bringing quality theatre, art, and culture. The space will be available to host events, open mic nights, improv, comedy, plays, and classes for adults and children.
We can't wait to entertain you!
