Walldogs seeking host families for artists

The Streator Walldogs Committee is seeking Streator-area host families to house artists next summer. Sign up at (or, then click on Help Us, then Host). The Walldogs are expecting to need about 100 host families.

Here are some important considerations:

  • Artists will have limited free time to spend with host families.
  • Late nights and early mornings are commonplace.
  • Artists will welcome quiet down time after a long day of physical labor.
  • The committee requests host homes be air conditioned.
  • Some homes need to accommodate up to three members of a Walldog family as well as doubles and singles.
  • The Walldog Food Committee provides meals and snacks.
  • Artists may require refrigerator space at their host home for beverages.

For questions, contact housing coordinator Cindy Wheeler at

The food truck festival will return from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 19 at Streator City Park.
