Chautauqua Auditorium


Built in 1903, it is the centerpiece of our park and community. The interior space of the building is 15,000 square feet with no posts to obscure view, the amazing roof structure is so unique, it is patented. It is the largest building of its kind anywhere in the world, and is listed on the


National Registry of Historic Places. Grecian statues designed by Robert Root decorate the stage that witnesses famous speakers including William Jennings Bryan and Billy Sunday, and vibrant musicians and performers John Phillips Sousa Band, Dolly Parton, REO Speedwagon, USAF Bands, and more.

After being placed on the Landmark Illinois’ Most Endangered List in 2009 & 2018 the


Chautauqua Building’s restoration is nearly complete, and the building is scheduled to reopen this spring! Reserve this grand, his- toric structure for your wedding, celebration or performance. This enormous 118 year old structure is the centerpiece of Forest Park, and the perfect rustic venue for your event. Contact City Hall to reserve 217-774-5531.
