“Very impressive”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

This is probably the greatest civic center of a city Peoria's size in the country. It is amazing how many things can go on there at the same time. Also the number to things that can go on there in a day. We have been there to watch the arena floor go from a basketball court to a hockey rink. It's just a fun place.

“Good all around venue”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Whether a Bradley University basketball game, a night at the theater, a concert, or a mega fund raising event, The Peoria Civic Center does a fine job all around. Organized and centrally located downtown, parking is good, employees are friendly and the center is always quite attractive and well kept.

“Great seats no matter where you sit”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I have seen 2 concerts at Peoria Civic Center and had great seats for both - Journey/Pat Benetar/Loverboy and Transiberian Orchestra. It is very easy to drive to no matter which direction you are coming from and very easy to get out and back home once it is over. I did not see any areas that would be too far to have a good view and there are many restaurants nearby if you don't want snacks/sandwiches inside the Center. I never feel unsafe going there and have always been happy with the concerts.
