You’ll love what we have planned for you! Outstanding music and dance. Celtic culture galore through games, exhibits and interactive sessions. Delicious food and drink. And so much more.
See you on the Peoria Riverfront!

Thanks to Our Sponsors

You could not have enjoyed Peoria Irish Fest last year — or any year — without the help of our generous sponsors. They play a critical role in allowing us the privilege of bringing the best of Celtic culture to you every year. Please be sure to thank our sponsors every chance you get!

Biggest and the Best

The Highland Games are always a favorite activity at the Peoria Irish Fest. The athletes are amazing and the history is interesting — but the competition is low-key and fun! If they are not competing, be sure to walk right up and ask the athletes about their hobby, and learn why they do what they do.

Best in the Midwest

Midwest Living Magazine included the Peoria Irish Fest as one of the 18 Top Midwest Events in the month of August. So, if you’re from out of town, make plans to check us out! Our hotel packages will be updated before our next festival, and they always include fest entry and discounted rooms. We hope to see you here!
