Tickets were $10 - super clean, family friendly and the concessions were all very reasonable. Great time if you have time when in Peoria.

Civic Center was nice concert venue. But Worst cab experience ever. Could not get cab after Eric Church concert. Waited an hour in bad weather after many many calls and online requests for a ride. finally had to bribe pizza delivery drive to take us back to hotel. Peoria must have 12 cabs total. Unbelievable for a city that size.... More

We saw Eric Church here last weekend. The show was amazing and we were very impressed with the sound system.

They were spilling the drinks as they passed them down to... More

Attended my first concert at the Civic Center and really liked the smaller size of this venue. Parking was very readily available and the seats had a good view. I will attend more concerts here!

If you are a tourist, you can take nice photos of the buildings - the new one and the old in the other side. It's a Convention Center. Nothing more.

The center is very close to shopping, restaurants, and hotels. The food being served in the center is very good as well.

I visited and reviewed back in 2012 and mentioned the flies. They are still a problem. I remembered right away this was the place with the flies. Not just a few but lots of flies that bug you all day long. Terrible!

I attended a convention that had to do with the fertilizer business. Sessions were held on the second floor and were very easy to see the stage area from wherever you set. The sound system was also very clear. The display area was large enough for all displays to have ample room. They were not packed in like sardines. Lunch... More
