Explor Peoria Event Calendar
PACE was formed in 1989. Prior to PACE, TPIP (Take Pride in Peoria Commission) coordinated the Taste of Peoria and the Mayor’s Rib Bib events for the City. The Peoria Convention and Visitors Bureau coordinated Steamboat Days, Brown Bag-Its, Friday Fests and Santa Parade activities. These events/activities were combined under PACE after the City of Peoria decided to delegate the operation of these events to one organization to better facilitate event planning. Pace was formed with several volunteers from TPIP, the Convention Bureau, and additional community volunteers. Events were added as needed to accomplish PACE’s mission.

Peoria Civic Center
The exterior of the Peoria Civic Center is a lovely tribute to modern architecture while reflecting the historic beauty of downtown Peoria. In 1983, the Civic Center Authority commissioned American artist Ronald Bladen to design a large sculpture for the main entrance. “Sonar Tide” is 26 feet high, 51 feet long, and four feet deep. The 16-ton, cantilevered sculpture bends and twists toward the Civic Center buildings.
