Beautiful Downtown Delavan

It?s almost ironic, but Delavan?s rich 175-year history is an important part of growth and development in the twenty-first century. The Locust Street Business District boasts a string of buildings with ornate 19th century metal work and distinctive architecture. In 1993, the streetscape along this stretch was restored with period streetlamps, a clock, and brick pavers. Investors have renovated and restored several of the structures, transforming them into a modern day art gallery, wine shop, restaurant and soon-to-be distillery. Downtown Delavan is home to many local businesses, including a grocery store, physician offices, pharmacy restaurants, and other service oriented companies that provide the basic necessities for small town comfort.

Delavan?s unique restaurants and community events certainly charm residents, but they also draw out-of-town visitors to the area. Whether they come to fulfill a special interest, or just to make a special memory, guests enjoy the town?s hospitality at a host of occasions:

Main Street Cruise In A downtown showcase for classic cars, plus nightly entertainment; monthly, April October

The Battle of Little Crane Creek A Civil War battle re-enactment that provides a look into the life of a Civil War soldier in the 1860s; late June

Four Rocks Arena An indoor horse arena that features the Illinois Youth Rodeo competition, plus barrel racing and horse shows year round

Fall Festival & Parade A family-oriented event that includes a carnival, car show, bingo, musical entertainment, duck race, tractor pulls and fireworks; held over Labor Day weekend.

Other events include Tazewell County Art Guild Fair and Downtown Wine Tastings & Art Fairs
