Peoria Music Festival @ Lake Pleasant
October 19 @ 12:00 pm - 11:00 pm
PHOENIX — Boots, beers and boats will invade Lake Pleasant for a new country music festival this fall.
The city of Peoria announced Thursday it is bringing the Peoria Country Music Fest to Lake Pleasant on Oct. 19.
The festival will feature live music from four acts — Hillbilly Deluxe, Chad Freeman, Josh Roy and Rob West — at Pleasant Harbor, the marina on the lake’s southeastern shore.
Food trucks, a beer garden, live bull riding and other attractions will also be featured during the festival’s run time of 2-11 p.m.
“Peoria Country Music Fest is going to showcase some of the best country music around at a one-of-a-kind location,” Peoria Vice Mayor Bridget Binsbacher said in a release. “We are so proud to have beautiful Lake Pleasant in our city with easy access and the perfect spot to kick up your heels for an entire weekend of entertainment and fun.”
Advance tickets can be purchased on the festival’s website for $15. The price increases to $20 at the door and is always $5 for children 12 and under.
A limited number of VIP tickets can be purchased for $45 and include two complimentary drink tickets, a complimentary meal at the harbor’s Dillon’s Bayou Restaurant and access to a special seating area with a dedicated cash bar.
Ticket prices do not include entry into the harbor. Vehicles can enter the harbor for a $10 fee.
No coolers or outside alcohol is permitted, per the release.
Those who want to camp at the lake can purchase a campsite through the festival website.
