Reader issue #694 The River Cities' Reader's second Annual Manual for the Arts features more than 250 listings covering art, theatre, music, dance, and the literary arts, from places to see an art exhibit or live music to organizations that offer classes to major festivals in and around the Quad Cities.

A pdf of the Annual Manual for the Arts can be downloaded by clicking here .

We've updated and added to our listings, and our aim is to be as comprehensive and accurate as possible. If there's something incorrect, or if you'd like to be included in next year's Annual Manual for the Arts, please e-mail ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) with the words "Annual Manual" in the subject line.

We're always looking for ways to improve the Annual Manual, too, so if you have ideas for making it better, send a note to the e-mail address above.
