On Saturday, March 26, we celebrated the 20th Annual Peoria Arts & Cultural Festival with more than 15,000 attendees. This event covered multiple city blocks in Old Town Peoria and included more than 3,000 pieces of student artwork that were on display throughout the event. Attendees enjoyed band, choir, orchestra and dance performances on seven stages throughout the day. There were family-friendly activities, food trucks, an instrument petting zoo, crafters and much more. Thanks to Park West, Huntington University, Valley Schools and our other sponsors for supporting the Peoria Education Foundation and and making this event possible!

    We are looking forward to the 21st Annual Peoria Arts & Cultural Festival which will be taking place on Saturday, March 4th 2023.
