The City of Peoria special events and arts team launched 2nd Saturdays in the fall of 2019 as a series of free, family-friendly events showcasing local dining and live entertainment. These events began in Old Town Peoria, a developing center for culture and the arts which is centrally located and home to numerous other events and programming. 2nd Saturdays live events take place on Washington Street and 83rd Avenue in Old Town Peoria from 4:30-8:30 p.m., including Osuna Park, the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts, Fire Station No. 1 – Lucidi Distilling Co., Iron Key Studio, and Driftwood Coffee. These events featured outdoor games, pop-up restaurants from local gourmet chefs, as well as live music and entertainment.
In early 2020, Peoria's 2nd Saturdays switched to an online format in an effort to reduce the exposure of COVID-19 and mitigate the risk to our community. We are committed to the health and safety of our residents. The city of Peoria continues to monitor COVID-19 updates from federal and local authorities. We still bring you the same great entertainment and music through an online live stream, which you can watch on your computer or mobile device.
