The City of Peoria's history goes back to the 1880’s. Some could challenge that our beginnings go back as far as the Native Americans who inhabited and traveled along the river now known as New River. As far back as humans have roamed this area, agriculture has been the reason for settlement. The city of Peoria is not only a great community, a great place to raise a family, and a beautiful city. It is also the place to come and experience great music. Both from your favorite superstars, to your home town bands.
