Please join us for this year's Riverfront Jazz and Arts Fest. The lineup features many of Illinois’ best jazz-influenced groups playing all day, as well as some great music workshops and a ton of talented artists set up along the river. Bring your friends and family down to the Peoria Riverfront for a beautiful summer day, a great selection of art displays and plenty of smokin' hot jazz tunes.


We provide opportunities for jazz musicians to perform and for fans to enjoy their favorite music. Our organization and programs depend on volunteers and memberships. We are always looking for new artists for our monthly programs.
