A Peoria Park District Facility


The PlayHouse offers two fundraisers each year: Be Anything and Hopscotch. Learn more about these events below.

Be Anything Logo



Be Anything! is an innovative program that propels "Take Your Child to Work Day" to a new level. Help a child in your life explore the careers that excite them. Do they want to be an architect, veterinarian, fireman, meteorologist? Are they unsure, but excited to try new experiences?

All children can be anything; they need only the tools and opportunity to imagine, practice, and become!

HopScotch is an adults-only evening with some of our favorite local restaurants and breweries, featuring signature whiskey cocktails and locally crafted brews. This event supports the PlayHouse’s maker programs, which help children gain the tools and skills they need to be the creators of tomorrow’s world.
