Weekly Events Header
Hello!

Although July has been flying by, it simply means we're one week closer to this year's 42nd Annual Street Fest! Presented by Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center, this year's Street Fest will be full of a variety of vendors, festival foods and drinks, firefighter water fights, great live music, and more! Participate in the Bix 7 run presented by the QC Times on Saturday morning and spend the rest of your day enjoying the Quad-Cities biggest homecoming party!
To all the country fans out there, you're in for a treat this weekend! The Heartland Jam Music Festival takes place this Friday and Saturday at Centennial Park. Here's your chance to see artists such as Phil Vassar, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, Rodney Atkins, and more...all within a two-day period! 
A significant portion of the festival's proceeds will go directly to the Loren Arp Memorial Foundation to assist children and families in the University of Iowa's burn treatment center.
One of the most distinct and powerful indie-rock/Americana groups takes the stage at River Music Experience tomorrow night. Come hear what all the buzz is about when The Pines perform their heart-piercing songs!. On Saturday, prepare to be swept away by energetic, tightly crafted music when RME hosts Holy Ghost Tent Revival. Until then, check out the creative union of The Grahams as they combine soulful bluegrass with Americana tonight at RME.
Looking for something new to see in the Quad Cities? Head to the River Center and be a part of one of the most exciting MMA Events this summer! Caged Aggression X debuts this Saturday and you won't want to miss out on this action! Or, head out to the Headbanger's Burlesque Part Deux at the Adler Theatre and get ready for an entertaining night!
What a better way to wind down the week than to live music in a coffee shop? Join Brewed Awakenings for their first of many summer events on Friday! Treat yourself to a refreshing smoothie or cup of joe while listening to live music by The Effie Afton band with special guest Janell Just. Keep an eye out for more events to come and be sure to stop in for breakfast or brunch!
Participate in a growing international movement that celebrates the art of giving by heading to the Figge for their Papergirl Project. Here's an opportunity to create some beautiful art for the public! Keep in mind PechaKucha Night is next Thursday at the Figge, too. Share ideas and interests with community members while enjoying complimentary appetizers, a cash bar, and PechaKucha presentations!
Take some time to explore Downtown Davenport this week. Stop at Bucktown Center for the Arts Wednesday through Saturday between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. to browse unique artwork and gifts! Or shop fair trade purses, jewelry, and more at SiS International! Make a day of it by grabbing lunch at Antonella's Pizzeria for delicious pizza or pasta and stopping by the Chocolate Manor for desert!
