CIAO First Fridays

Written By: Andrew Ketterer


Join the Central Illinois Arts Organization (CIAO) this Friday from 5:00-9:00 p.m. as they host November’s First Friday tour. This event gives visitors an intimate look at studios, galleries and arts organizations in Peoria.

Stop by any one location and you will get the opportunity to meet artists, musicians and collectors at ten locations that includes a wide breadth of artistic media!

After experiencing this tour first hand this summer, I can say that it’s a great way to start your Friday night in Central Illinois, especially if you enjoy the thriving arts community within the Peoria Area.

This event is FREE to the public and most locations provide beverages and snacks for a small charge or donation request.
