Steamboat Days Festival

Ferris WheelTaking place on the Riverfront in downtown Peoria, the 45th annual Steamboat Days Festival combines a bigger, better carnival, delicious food and drinks, great musical entertainment and more in a family-friendly atmosphere!

Continuing this great Peoria tradition, Steamboat Days Festival 2015 will be Thursday, June 18 through Saturday, June 20, 2015. This year's festival includes the bigger and better carnival featuring a monstrous 65 foot Ferris Wheel and other rides and games. You can also sit in the driver’s seat of a NASCAR race car and experience a thrilling simulated race. We’ll also have a 1988 Goodwrench Monte Carlo that was driven at Daytona by the late, great Dale Earnhardt, Sr. Get your picture with the car, take a look under the hood, and listen to the engine roar!

Steamboat Days Festival 2015 will celebrate Peoria’s Riverfront and attract families to a wide variety of events, including concerts Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, the internationally renowned Steamboat Classic race, a bags tournament, and other fun activities for all ages! Again this year, the Steamboat Classic race starts at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday ending in the soccer field with a post-race party and awards presentations until 11am.
