It’s called “Ignite Peoria” and it will be held at the Peoria Civic Center August 9, 2014.
Jim Wetherington, Director of the Peoria Civic Center, said the performing arts are a vital part of Peoria.
“There's so much art in Peoria, and it's all little pockets. So, we wanted to try to bring those pockets together,” said Wetherington.
He said it also drives in more business.
Wetherington hopes the event grows into a three-day festival.
