East West Riverfest Festival

Join us for Quad Cities’ 2nd annual
East West Riverfest Festival.

The festival is a 17-day extravaganza featuring theater, music, exhibits, tours, presentations, and history and literary events in the Quad Cities area.

This Quad Cities-wide celebration and collaboration will inspire, entertain, educate, and immerse you in the wonderful sights, sounds, and flavors of the unique region on the Mississippi River known as the Quad Cities.

The festival runs from September 6 – September 22, 2013. You can spend “An Evening with the Vikings,” travel back in time during “Forget-Me-Not: Victorian Day,” take part in a book discussion, see renowned storyteller Brian Fox Ellis, tour Colonel Davenport House, take the toddlers to “Preschool Story Time,” soak up the heritage and culture of the Olde Towne neighborhood during the “Fall Flemish Fest,” and much more!

A full list of events is available online. You can also download the program.

There are many fun, free, and low cost events available for the whole family to enjoy! So, bring the whole family down for a week or weekend chock-full of fun.

The East West Riverfront Festival is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Illinois General Assembly.
