About Us

The Hoffman Estates Arts Commission was established in 1998 with the mission to bring all the ARTS to Hoffman Estates residents. It is a voluntary advisory commission to the village board and sponsors great events like the Thursday Summer Concert Series, High Tea, T-n-T Theater Event, Speaker Series, Photography Workshop, the Children's Concerts in the Park with the HE Park District and many more!
