The Peoria Civic Center hosts over 375 events per year, drawing in more than 900,000 visitors annually. The Peoria Civic Center opened on June 6, 1982, with a Kenny Rogers concert with 11,712 people in attendance. The Peoria Civic Center, which is currently undergoing a $55 million expansion and upgrade, features an Arena, Exhibit Hall, Theater, and Meeting Room space.
The exterior of the Peoria Civic Center is a lovely tribute to modern architecture while reflecting the historic beauty of downtown Peoria. In 1983, the Civic Center Authority commissioned American artist Ronald Bladen to design a large sculpture for the main entrance. "Sonar Tide" is 26 feet high, 51 feet long, and four feet deep. The 16-ton, cantilevered sculpture bends and twists toward the Civic Center buildings.
