Celebrating Irish Women: Tis the Year of Herself

Honoring all the women in our lives, this year’s theme draws on the strong spirits of Ireland’s leading ladies. Spa-like treatments, interesting exhibits and guest speakers are only some of the treats we have in store. Many features will be free; some require a small fee. Stop by and let your Irish shine!

Happy Hour 5K

This year’s race will raise funds to support the General Wayne A. Downing Home for Veterans in Peoria. So run, walk, hop, or crawl your way along the flat riverside course! Entrants receive free fest admission, a souvenir pint glass and more. Discounted tickets for guests or the entire weekend are also part of the deal. Sign up here.

Lend a Helping Hand

We’ll let you in on a secret: our volunteers have the most fun! Peoria Irish Fest could not happen without the assistance of 350+ volunteers who help things go smoothly – and with a smile! Volunteering is another way to get in free, so please consider registering to help out this year. You’ll be glad you did!
