Wee Folks

PIF Kids

Peoria Irish Fest is a family-friendly event! Under our tents you will find free activities for kids of all ages.

The Wee Folks Area is open Saturday and Sunday noon to 5pm (see schedule below). During this time kids can participate in any or all of the following activities:

  • Crafting – Many fun things to make, including shamrock scratchers, foam hats, beading, and coloring. All items can be taken home as a souvenir of their time spent at Irish Fest!
  • Face painting and temporary tattoos.
  • Fingernail painting with green nail polish.
  • Have a balloon made in nearly any shape you can imagine by a Balloon Artist from The Unique Twist – for kids 3+
  • Bouncers (Fun on the Run) – weight limit of 100 lbs (for safety).
  • Get face to face with farm animals with a petting zoo from Barnyard Discoveries.
  • Visit with a few animals and enjoy a Q&A with the keeper from Peoria Zoo Mobile.
  • Story and tea party with a fairy (twice daily – see onsite program for times).
