Share all there is to do in DeKalb County

The DeKalb County Visitors Guide is here! It is jam-packed with events and attractions for visitors to explore and experience. We have started distributing and shipping it across the county and state.


Available for DeKalb County Businesses & Organizations
The Visitors Guide is the premier marketing piece for DeKalb County. Your distribution efforts will help increase visibility for our local attractions. The guide also makes a great recruitment tool to highlight what the region has to offer.

State Wide Distribution
  • Visitors guides are distributed to Northern Illinois University (5,000), the DeKalb County Legislative Building, and municipalities, hotels, attractions and chambers throughout DeKalb County.
  • The DCCVB pays to place the guide in visitor kiosks located at tollway oasis (Belvidere, DeKalb, O’Hare, and Hinsdale), Chicago Hotels along I-80 & I-88, and at popular attractions like Navy Pier across Chicago-land, the Quad Cities and beyond.
  • Because the DCCVB is a certified bureau, we are able to take part in Illinois Office of Tourism Partnerships to place guides at Chicago’s Union Station, seven tourist information centers, and other locations as they become available.
