AUGUST 25, 2019 15:59:46The Peoria performing art venue, located in Peoria, Illinois, will host a performance by the Peoria Folklore Theater.
The Peoria performance will take place on Friday, September 25 at 7:00 p.m.
The performance will be free.
The Peori Folklore Theatre, created in 1916 by an artist named Charles Sturtz, is a nonprofit theater with a mission to enhance Peoria and the surrounding communities.
Peoria has been a cultural hub for the past 125 years, and the Peori Theatre has played a key role in preserving and expanding the community’s cultural heritage.
In a statement, the Peorians say, “The Peoric Folklore is a unique, free-standing performance space in Peorians history.
With a vibrant and eclectic repertoire, the theater has served Peoria for decades and has become a part of the fabric of the Peoric community.”
The theater’s website says that the Peorian Folklore has been “inactive for many years” and that it was recently moved to a different location.
The site lists “Pelican Bay” as the venue.
The theater was formerly the Peirons’ theater and will be open for performances at 7 p.me, 9 p.ma, and 11 p.a.
This will be the first time that Peoria will be hosting a Peoria folk music performance.
