Fall Events at Allerton Park & Retreat Center


Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)

Ashley Sims, Event Coordinator, and Myisha Howard, Marketing Coordinator with Allerton are here with details on special events happening this fall.

Allerton is not only an amazing destination for hiking, exploring, and beautiful landscaping– we host a variety of events all year round! From yoga in the meadow, to murder mystery dinners in the mansion, to summer concerts on the Gatehouse lawn– there’s always something to look forward to! Keep an eye on our facebook and website for new events all the time.

Not only do we have a variety of events but we also operate as a hotel. We have hotel rooms available in the Mansion and we also have 3 other buildings to stay in overnight. Staying overnight is super affordable all year round but one tip I like to mention to people looking to send the night is to check out our Special Events, often time we offer discounted stays when you attend one of our events! We also offer camping during our summer concert series!

Allerton is like nothing else in this area! We have a little bit of everything but also there’s always something new to find and explore.
