Had a business related show to attend as an exhibitor, was very impressed with the overall facility. Great for our show, there is also an arena and theater for other venues as well.

I have been here for many concerts and events over the years. It is conveniently located downtown near food and lodging. It feels open and airy.

Easy to get to venue. Conveniently located by many hotels, restaurants and the river. Concessions are over priced.

We attended a gymnastics event at the Civic Center. Place was easy to find, parking was easy to access. Weekend parking rates for our event were $7/day. The center was clean, plenty of bathrooms, which were also clean. Concession stand was pricey (as usual), but had decent items available (chicken strips with fries filled us up).

Have been to some great concerts in the arena and the auditorium has wonderful acoustics. Parking across the street makes it very convenient to get from your car to the Civic Center!

The Civic Center is a great venue for the state tournament. Parking was easy, the building was clean and both food service and bathrooms were convenient. The only criticism I have is that the food and drink prices are extremely high. Three dollars for a small bottle of water is just ridiculous.

Price for junk food kept me from making a purchase. $8.50 for a 12 oz. beer is ridiculous, however, there were plenty of people buying. Won't ever eat or drink there.

I try not to go to the Peoria Civic Center. Not only are concerts expensive, but parking is hard to find. Also, I am afraid of the neighborhood. The price of food and drink is expensive. It is also very cold inside. I also don't appreciate that there is a strip club across the street. What is wrong with this... More

The Civic Center looked like a piece of art from the outside. Beautiful and made of all glass. Unfortunately, when we visited it was extremely cold outside which made it extremely cold inside with all of it's glass. The Theater in the Civic Center was very large with good acoustics. The food, less than average for any arena but costs... More
