The City of Peoria special events and arts team is hosting a series of events, food, theater and live music in the heart of Old Town Peoria. Events are held both indoors and outdoors at the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts, in Osuna Park, and on Washington Street in front of Fire Station No. 1 – Lucidi’s Distillery.

Old Town is developing as a center for culture and the arts as more programming and events are offered in this central location. Every weekend this fall and winter, you can catch a variety of entertainment and food options:  Enjoy live music performances, eat local, have a drink and enjoy the night. With plenty of space to run around, and pop-up games to play, this venue is a great place for the whole family.  Lots of options for your weekends as well as select weeknight evenings.
