Out and About in Greater Peoria: Indoor market, National Hot Cocoa Day and "Puffs"

Here are 3 things to do for the weekend of Jan. 28 through Jan. 21, 2024, curated by WCBU's Meagan Ruger-Smith. You can find more coverage on our Out & About - Arts & Music page or by subscribing to WCBU's Weekend Fanfare email newsletter, which goes out every Friday.

Shop local vendors: Tomorrow, check out the Peoria Riverfront Indoor Winter Market. This event is indoors at the Peoria Riverplex, running from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Many of your favorite RiverFront Market vendors are back together one last time before the summer season opens mid-May. The market will feature local products including baked goods, honey, coffee, cheesecake, soup mixes and more!

Celebrate National Hot Cocoa Day: Join Art at the Bodega on Sunday for a delightful family-friendly celebration on National Hot Cocoa Day! In their class, all ages can unleash their artistic talents while sipping on warmth from our festive hot cocoa bar. Create lasting memories together as you craft adorable marshmallow mugs, turning this cozy experience into a heartwarming tradition! Your ticket for the event includes your mug, delicious cup of cocoa and more.

A new take on a classic story: This weekend, Puffs is playing at Corn Stock Theatre. For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs… who just happened to be there too. A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world. Get your tickets now!
