Community Services, Neighborhood Resources, and Public Safety engage the Peoria community through these events held in parks throughout the city. Neighborhoods are brought together with free, fun, entertaining and informative activities. ParkFest! events are designed to connect the community by introducing neighbors and providing information about city services through a unique and creative festival atmosphere.
The ParkFest! events were originally inspired by Mayor and Council through the City’s annual budget process utilizing the City Special Events team. The goal when coordinating these events is to enhance and expand on what was done in previous years of the program, continue to celebrate diverse populations and bring neighborhoods together in Peoria.
The events are FREE and can include a movie, inflatables, free food, special activities, face painting and more.
