Annual Costume Swap: Drop-Off Days
Oct 1 – Oct 15 all-day

Halloween is fast approaching! What kind of costume will you wear?

Have old costumes to donate? Drop off your gently used costume at the Peoria PlayHouse anytime during the museum’s open hours, from October 1 through October 15. In exchange, you will receive a “Costume Swap Voucher” – good for a free costume at the swap!

Then, bring your voucher to the PlayHouse on October 20th from 10am-Noon, and choose a “new” costume from the costume swap collection.

Does your costume need something else – a hat, a sword, a prop of some sort? You can work with PlayHouse staff in Real Tools on October 20th from Noon-4pm to create your accessory, as well as enjoy additional Halloween activities at our Haunted PlayHouse event!
