Get the family together and get ready for one of the best Irish festivals in the Midwest … the Peoria Irish Fest!
Formerly known as Erin Feis, Peoria Irish Fest has been in Peoria since 1981. Our festival celebrates all things Irish – culture, music, food, storytelling, dance, and much more. Peoria Irish Fest falls on the last weekend of August every year down on the RiverFront.
First, let’s talk food! Food vendors are never more than a few steps away from wherever you may be. Not quite satisfied with the nearby options? Keep walking! Our vendors offer a tempting variety of delicious options.
Four fantastic pubs, scattered across the grounds, boast their own distinct atmosphere and personality, and are staffed by volunteers who take great pride in their work. Select from a mouth-watering variety of beers, ciders, and soft drinks at each location. Dann Haney and KC Murphy work together as a team throughout the year to bring the pubs to life.
Enjoy the food, drinks, and live music from Doolin’, The Gothard Sisters, Seven Nations, One For The Foxes, Skerryvore, Paddy Homan and the Noble Call, Jig Jam, Kennedy’s Kitchen, and MORE! Want the full line up? Click here!
