FunMusic/EntertainmentRecreation August 5, 2021


Did you know are so many great things to do during the late summer in the Greater Peoria Area?

The past year and a half have brought a lot to a halt – canceled concerts, festivals, downsizing of events, and even closed restaurants. However, this summer has brought more to life (still following CDC guidelines) and we are grateful!

The St. Jude Runs weekend was back (although modified for very good reasons) and was such a huge success.

Local restaurants and bars were opening back up with indoor dining, alfresca style dining, and live music.

Every Saturday in Downtown Peoria there are a couple fantastic offerings: 8am-12pm, there’s the Peoria Riverfront Farmer’s Market and the Sculpture Walk 10am at the Peoria Riverfront Museum.

Kellar Station has their own farmer’s market every Wednesday 4pm-7pm.

Get in your car and go to Mackinaw Valley Winery to see JammSammich August 7th.

Plan for the Peoria Erin Fest August 27-29; Pekin Marigold Festival September 11-12; Morton Pumpkin Fest September 15-18.

Just a few reminders that we have so many local events that you have the opportunity to enjoy. Go out there and enjoy where you live!
