Stay and Play This Summer by Visiting Local Businesses

Jun 9, 2017

Many Central Illinois families are choosing "staycations" this year and experiencing the numerous events and local attractions the Peoria area has to offer. Peoria County, the City of Peoria, Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce are promoting “Stay and Play - Shop Local” through billboards and social media to encourage residents to shop locally this summer as part of our larger Grow Peoria County campaign.

Businesses in Peoria County (and those that support them!) are asked to change their profile image or cover photo on social media pages to join in our collective effort to support our business friends and neighbors from now through July 3.

Profile images and cover photos with Stay and Play and Grow Peoria County images are available at and our Facebook page,

The City of Peoria also has Grow Peoria County promotional material available for local businesses. Contact Leslie L. McKnight, PhD, City of Peoria, 309-494-8651 or for information on promotional items. For more information on the Grow Peoria County campaign, contact Gretchen Pearsall, Director of Strategic Communications at Peoria County, at (309) 672-6918 or

Let’s continue to work together to keep our dollars growing in our local economy.
