Peoria Civic Center TicketsRight next to City Hall in the heart of downtown is the Peoria Civic Center. The multi-purpose Illinois venue was first opened in 1982 and has been serving the community’s every major gathering need since then. Sports, entertainment, conventions, and more have found a home in one of its many spacious facilities. The sports arena hosts Bradley University’s basketball team as well as the local American Hockey League team, the Rivermen. High school, college, and professional games in a great variety of sports can be seen in the arena year round. The exhibit hall with its versatile floor plan has been home to fairs, conventions, banquets, and meetings of all shapes and sizes and can suit virtually any needs in terms of technical support and hospitality. And of course the 2,200 seat theater cannot be overlooked. Ballets, symphony orchestras, operas, concerts, and Broadway shows have all made their way to this stage. Upcoming events that are well worth picking up tickets for include WWE Raw, Journey, and Gordon Lightfoot.
