Simantel is proud to support Peoria Public Works for their first ever CityFest, a location-specific party that highlights updated and improved parts of our hometown. Simantel provided branding, messaging and creative support for this party on the move.

The inaugural CityFest >> Warehouse will draw attention to the renewed stretch of Adams Street between Pecan Street and Persimmon Street and highlight one of the City’s green infrastructure pilot project.

  1. The event is free and open to all. It will be hosted on October 22, 4-8 p.m. on Adams Street, between Pecan and Persimmon (the road will be closed to traffic).
  2. Guests can enjoy live music and hear remarks by City leadership.
  3. The event will feature an outdoor café and attendees can purchase food and drink from multiple food trucks and a beer tent.

This party honors the many citywide efforts focused on revitalizing Peoria, including work to beautify and improve accessibility, provide more bike lanes and manage wet weather in smart, innovative ways.

“This is a great way to show support for our city,” said Maggie Whalen Misselhorn, VP and Executive Creative Director at Simantel. “The innovative thinking the City of Peoria is doing to handle our wet weather issues is good for our river and it’s good for some of our older neighborhoods too. I love that we can have fun while at the same time learn about some really important things happening in our community.”

The event is being sponsored by Peoria Public Works, Limelight EventPlex/Working Man Productions, OneWater Peoria, WWCT FM and Advanced Media Partners.
