This Week in Downtown Davenport: 7/3 - 7/9 PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events
Written by Downtown Davenport Partnership

Although Red, White & Boom is cancelled due to flooding, there are plenty of other ways to get your fireworks fix around the Quad Cities this Fourth of July weekend. Browse the list of places to go for fireworks shows provided by the Quad City Times here. That said, downtown Davenport is OPEN FOR BUSINESS thanks to the incredible flood-fighting protection from the City of Davenport Public Works crews!  Plan to visit downtown this weekend!

 

 The Mississippi Valley Blues Festival kicks off today on Second Street between Brady and Ripley Streets. Additional workshops will be held in the River Music Experience, too. Please note that the Redstone Parking Ramp will be open and accessible via temporary 2-way traffic on Brady Street. With live music, free workshops, BlueSKool, a photo exhibit, and more, a busy and fun weekend lies ahead! Come on out and show your love for blues in the QC.

 

 The time has come for the return of G. Love & Special Sauce to Downtown Davenport! Tonight, River Music Experience hosts the hip-hop/blues crew in the Redstone Room. Sample RME and Great River Berwery's new brew, Vintage Blonde, during their Sneak Peek Tasting before tonight's show. Great River Brewery will host the Vintage Blonde Official Tapping Party on Saturday. A portion of the proceeds from this beer will help support RME music educational programming!  Make note that RME will remain open July 4th and 5th for MVBS events.

 

 Crews have been hard at working putting up a temporary ramp leading to Modern Woodmen Park so the Quad Cities River Bandits can play ball! Bring the family out tomorrow night for Fourth of July Fireworks, an amazing view of the river,  and to cheer on the River Bandits as they face the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. Head back Saturday for Fan Appreciation day and Sunday for pregame autographs, bark in the park, and a Hy-Vee tote bag giveaway.

 

 The rising river doesn't keep fresh goods from coming downtown. The Farmer's Market will be open this weekend on 4th Street at the Scott County Office between Western and Gains. Although the Farmer's Market is moving for the weekend, remember that Quad Cities Food Hub, Front Street Brewery, the Front Street Tap Room, and the rest of the businesses downtown are all still open and accessible.   Fresh Deli by Nostalgia Farms will be closed for the holiday, but back open on July 5th.

 

Stay up-to-date with street closures, detours, and flood protection information by visiting the City of Davenport's website.

 

See you downtown!
