CityFest >> Warehouse Celebrates Better Blocks

Peoria Public Works and the iTeam are launching the first ever CityFest. CityFest is a location-specific party that highlights updated and improved parts of Peoria. Each CityFest will celebrate a different part of the city.

The inaugural CityFest >> Warehouse will draw attention to the renewed stretch of Adams Street between Pecan Street and Persimmon Street and marks the conclusion of the City’s green infrastructure pilot project.

1. The event is free and open to all. It will be hosted on October 22, 4-8 p.m. on Adams Street, between Pecan and Persimmon (the road will be closed to traffic).

2. Guests can enjoy live music and hear remarks by City leadership.

3. The event will feature an outdoor café and attendees can purchase food and drink from multiple food trucks and a beer tent.

This party honors the many citywide efforts focused on revitalizing Peoria, including work to beautify and improve accessibility, provide more bike lanes and manage wet weather in smart, innovative ways.

This is a great opportunity for everyone to engage in the changes happening in our city,” said Public Works Director Scott Reeise. “We want people to come and explore parts of Peoria that they may not visit often and see the ways we’re improving our public spaces.”

The event is being held in conjunction with Limelight EventPlex/Working Man Productions, OneWater Peoria and WWCT FM & Advanced Media Partners.
