Cultural Trail Sign-Up Form

The Elgin Area Conventions and Visitors Bureau is working to create a new Trail to explore cultural experiences in the area. We are inviting you to participate in one of our various Food Trails and the new Cultural Experiences Trail! The goal of these trails is to get more customers to your business and increase people exploring the Elgin area. The Cultural Experiences Trail will begin in 2024 and will include incentives for people to visit your business, museum, nature center, arts center, and public library.

What you can do
to help make this a success

  • Hand out the Passport cards and share the QR codes that are included in the media kit.
