We were at the Peoria Civic Center for IESA cheer competition and the facility was ok. Clean, easy to get around. The area outside the competion room was COLD. The refreshments were pricy, $4 for a bottle of water. Seating was flat so those in the back did not get to see much. The facility in Springfield two weeks prior... More

Kinda run down and looks older they could use some updates. Parking ok if you know which door to go in. Food options are very limited and the pretzels were always over done and dry

Two great days of fun at the Civic Center. First we ice skated in an outside rink. Hadn't ice skated in 30 years. Then on New Years Day we took the family of 9 to watch a hockey game! Tremendous fun! Who would have thought we'd see an Alabama team play! Great seats and great prices! Definitely worth looking into... More

We saw a private show of the Chinese Dragon Acrobats this weekend. Since it was private, I will not speak to the ushers or finding seats as that was done by volunteers and it was not good. But I will speak to the fact that we were in the 2nd balcony, nearly to the top and all the way to... More

We have been to the Peoria Civic Center several times, the most recent being for a hockey game. I love the versatility of the different types of spaces to be utilized, and it is always clean.

Nice venue. Would go again. Only complaint was the bathrooms. Everything was backed up by the end of the night.

We've recently moved to the area and so far we've been to at least 4 events here. It's easy to navigate, traffic isn't bad, and the shows/events are great! food/drinks are expensive, but that's to be expected.
