About

The Peoria Blues & Heritage Music Festival, formerly known as The Illinois Blues Festival, has been a staple End of Summer event at Peoria’s beautiful riverfront festival park for 28 years. Now in it’s 29th year, Festival goers will bask in the glow of the sun on the beautiful downtown peoria riverfront while they enjoy a world class lineup 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!

Thanks to all the amazing musicians, our sponsors and all of you for making our festival downstate Illinois’ favorite Blues & Heritage Music Festival! We can’t wait to see you on the Peoria Riverfront on Labor Day Weekend in 2017.
