Alison Cullinan Unkovich



Alison Cullinan Unkovich spearheaded and chairs the annual Christmas in the Village event at Peoria Riverfront Museum, which is designed to bring families and the community together with museum-oriented activities, local foods and crafts and live entertainment. The inaugural event featured Peoria’s largest live Christmas tree. The event has since grown to a two-day festival, with proceeds benefitting the Peoria Riverfront Museum’s Every Student Initiative.

Unkovich is an educator who taught in Chicago Public Schools for many years before returning to the Peoria area. She is a long-time community supporter and volunteer, focused on causes that support families and children.
