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!

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!
