Peoria Blues & Heritage Music Festival

The 28th annual Peoria Blues & Heritage Music Festival is September 2-3, 2016! Much like how the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival celebrates all things music & it’s home city, so shall we every Labor Day weekend.  Festival-goers will bask in the glow of the sun on the beautiful downtown Peoria Riverfront while they enjoy a world-class line-up of artists from blues, roots, funk, soul and everything in between. Help us bring downtown to life as the event stretches off the waterfront into bars, venue and businesses through after hours events, late night club shows and much more!

Featuring:

Buddy Guy

O.A.R.

Here Come the Mummies

Mavis Staples
