arts and culture 

Peoria Arts & Cultural Festival
presented by Valley Schools
 Saturday, March 30th, 2019,  8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
at Old Town Peoria, Peoria and Grand Avenues

Students will exhibit their artwork and perform dance routines, theater acts, choir performances and band concerts at the Peoria Arts & Cultural Festival.

Each year the city of Peoria and Peoria Unified School District partners on this event to showcase student artistic talents and raise money for the Peoria Education Foundation. Along with a variety of arts, guests can watch demonstrations, enjoy the Kid Zone, order from food trucks, create make-and-take crafts, and shop from craft vendors. A coin truck, hosted by MidFirst Bank, will be positioned at Osuna Park to collect spare change from community members as an added component to the foundation’s fundraiser for this event.

Attendees can also enjoy the Instrument Petting Zoo, sponsored by the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM). The event is free to the public. Some of the activities may require the purchase of a wristband for a small fee to participate.

Food will be available for purchase on-site.
