The High Kings announce their appearance at the Peoria Irish Fest!


You’ll Love Our Lineup

Your event organizers look far and wide to bring you some of the best … and even surprising … performers to enjoy. Be sure to keep an eye on our bands page and both the band stage schedule and the dance stage schedule to see who is coming to play in Peoria for you this year!

5K + Beer + Good Cause

That’s a winning combination! Please join our Happy Hour 5K, which benefits the Nicholas J. Murphy Foundation. Created to honor the memory of a fallen serviceman (and Dunlap HS graduate), the foundation serves others as Nick did. So even if you WALK the 5K, you’ll be doing a good turn!

Hotel Packages

Peoria Irish Fest and downtown Peoria has way too much to offer to take in on one day. So make your home-away-from-home plans with our official hotel package (festival tickets included!) or one of the many other options nearby. You’ll be glad you did!
