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!
