IGNITE Peoria is a celebration of creativity that will feature events that will inspire innovation, release artistic vision and spark the passionate imagination of our community.

Join us at the Peoria Civic Center for the Third Annual IGNITE Peoria!

August 13th, 2016


IGNITE Peoria began with a spark in 2013, when members of the arts community came together with the idea to host an event that celebrated creativity of all kinds right here in Peoria. On Saturday, August 9th, 2014, ArtsPartners of Central Illinois, The Peoria Civic Center and The Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau hosted the first-ever IGNITE Peoria, a celebration of creativity featuring a range of events to inspire innovation, release artistic vision and spark the imagination of the community.

According to all who attended, that mission was accomplished. Far exceeding expectations, the event had a tremendous turnout, bringing more than 6,300 people to downtown Peoria to touch, feel, taste, see and interact with the local arts community. Look for IGNITE Peoria to return bigger and better than ever in 2016!
