Tap your toes!  Move your feet!  Get up and dance to the live jazz music of Don Estes and the Prairie Ramblers at the 25th Annual Bix Porch Party!  Enjoy the block party featuring live jazz, entertainment, food, and more on Thursday, August 2, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (music starts at 11:30) at the Main Street Library (321 Main Street).

Enjoy FREE music, entertainment, popcorn, and lemonade.  The library’s Teen Volunteer Council will sell hotdogs and soda at bargain prices to help raise money for teen items at the library!

Bring lawn chairs and blankets, and wear your dancing shoes as we block off Main Street for some good old-fashioned fun.  Come for the music and enjoy the old-timey carnival of popcorn, lemonade, and more!  This FREE event is for people of all-ages.

Stop in the Library afterwards and visit the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center to learn more about Bix and see the display of Bix Jazz Festival posters.  Call 563-326-7832 for more information.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Davenport Public Library.
