Food And Drink

There are lot of things to see and do while you explore the Peoria Irish Fest, and you’re bound to work up a strong appetite and a powerful thirst!

Food vendors are never more than a few steps away from wherever you may be. Not quite satisfied with the nearby options? Keep walking! Our vendors offer a tempting variety of delicious options.

Our 2023 food vendors included:

  • W.E. Sullivans Irish Pub & Fare – Always a fest favorite!
  • Palarte – Ice cream, with Guinness and Irish Cream flavors!
  • The Station – Check out their Irish Horseshoe!
  • Popcorn Heaven – Green, white and orange delights!
  • Scotsfare Heritage Meat Pies – Meat pies? Enough said!
  • Swanne’s Pretzels – Handmade giant pretzels
  • Hickry Stick– Fantastic BBQ
  • BALCO – From funnel cakes to nachos
  • Janes Sweet Addiction– Who doesn’t love Jane’s?

Five fantastic pubs, scattered across the grounds, boast their own distinct atmosphere and personality and are staffed by volunteers who take great pride in their work. Select from a mouth-watering variety of beers, ciders, spirits, and soft drinks at each location. Our bars team work throughout the year to bring the pubs to life.

Be certain to check the schedule for the ever-popular Irish Whiskey tastings. Classes will be held in the Tasting Room, located on the third floor of the Gateway Building. Visit one of our many pubs to learn how to purchase a ticket for these popular events!

Keep your eyes open for our Tart on a Cart!  If you’re lucky, you may spot her riding around the grounds on a custom-built contraption selling samples of whiskey, merchandise, and providing entertainment for those who find her!

Food and drink prices will be posted at each location.

If you like our pubs, you’ll love our selection of commemorative T-shirts, available at the Merchandise Tent.
