To serve the greater Schaumburg area as a center of cultural arts activity through constant innovation, exceptional customer service and a focus on quality in all that we do.
The Cultural Services Department maintains and promotes activities related to the Al Larson Prairie Center for the Arts, special events management and cable television production. The Prairie Center serves as the hub of arts activities in the Northwest suburbs; music, theatre, dance, film, storytelling, children's performances, and the visual arts are offered year round in the Center's 442-seat theatre, outdoor stage and gallery. The Special Events Division oversees coordination of activities including Septemberfest, the Prairie Arts Festival, and the Volunteer of the Year Awards program. A fully-equipped video production studio provides a platform for the department to develop a variety of video content for the Village’s training programs, website, social media and cable television channels.
