A quintessential Christmas experience is returning to Downtown Pekin! Christmas on Court will be held Friday, December 1st from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Santa will be making an appearance and the event will have live entertainment!

Businesses in the downtown area will be open for shopping as well as pop-up market vendors for a diverse holiday shopping experience. 

Christmas on Court is hosted by the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Pekin Main Street, the City of Pekin Tourism Committee, Discover Pekin, and Discover Peoria. This family event emphasizes supporting a “shop small” initiative with the Pekin community. 

#ShopLocal365 is a regional partnership encouraging community members to shop local at the holidays and year-round. With each community in the Greater Peoria region offering unique specialty retailers, the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce invites residents and guests from the region to use Christmas on Court as an opportunity to visit and shop Pekin.
