A Peoria Park District Facility

Birthday Bash 2020

Happy Birthday to the PlayHouse!

This year, the PlayHouse is celebrating our 5th birthday! Though we can't celebrate with our usual Birthday Bash at our facility, that doesn't mean we can't have a party! 

Virtual Dance Party

June 12th, the fifth anniversary to the day of when we opened our doors to the public, will be our big celebration! On Friday, June 12th, from 4:00-5:30pm, we will have a 5,000 second dance party to celebrate our 5th year! Join us to learn some dance moves with local dance studios and dance along with other friends of the PlayHouse!  This dance party will take place over Zoom, and we will be joined by local dancers from Peoria Area Performing Arts Studio (PAPAS), Peoria Ballet, and more.

Is your child celebrating a birthday in June? Let us know so we can give them a special shout-out during this virtual celebration! Email us at playhouse@peoriaparks.org with your child's first name and age.

Art Auction

The Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum believes in supporting children as makers, inventors, and next-generation innovators that will fundamentally change our world. In celebration of our 5th birthday and in honor of our making philosophy, we are holding an art auction to support local artists and makers. This auction will open on Friday, June 5th and close on Friday, June 12th and 50% of the proceeds from all winning bids will go back to the artist who created the piece. Thank you for supporting the PlayHouse and local makers, big and small!

Birthday party packs

In order to help you celebrate, the PlayHouse has created exclusive party packs filled with inspiration for throwing your own party for the PlayHouse! These party packs will be a digital guide to celebrating at home. They will include instructions for creating a party hat, the PlayHouse's favorite cupcake recipe, and more.

Party packs will be available to those who donate any amount in honor of our 5th birthday.
