Things to Do in Peoria, IL

Peoria Calendar of Events

Come to Peoria early and stay out  late with all the exciting attractions and things to do in Peoria. Peoria’s  unique riverfront location plays host to numerous outstanding live entertainment  opportunities in the warmer months.  Come  and sample the different marvelous wines at one of Peoria’s three area  wineries.  Shop till you drop at our wide  variety of malls and chic boutiques or set out on an adventure and experience  the nature that Central Illinois has to offer at the local Peoria Zoo or the  Wildlife Prairie Park. There's so many ways to “Play in Peoria," and you can find out about each one of our wonderful attractions  below. Search by name or category, find out how to get there with the Google  map application and much more!  

Distinct  Midwest  seasons allow us to host an assortment of festivals, attractions and other fun  in our communities, big and small.  During the spring seasons we host the IHSA  State Basketball March Madness Tournament, garden shows, music festivals and  more! With the heat of summer, it’s the perfect time to head to Splashdown Waterpark  to cool off or swing by the riverfront in the evenings to enjoy a variety of  concerts at the CEFCU Center Stage. The fall months are the ideal time to take  a tour on the Spirit of Peoria or a short drive to Morton for the annual  Pumpkin Festival. The cool winter time is the only time to experience the East  Peoria Festival of Lights or see the longest running parade in America, the  Santa Claus Parade.
