Hello!
Fish The Mississippi Valley Blues Festival is under way! Keep in mind the festival is now on 2nd street from Ripley St. to Brady St. in Downtown Davenport. Additional stages and workshops will be housed in the River Music Experience and its courtyard outside. Show your love for blues at one of the finest fests in the country and catch Kenny Wayne Shepherd along with many more amazing bands!
Take some time to appreciate the art around Downtown Davenport this weekend. Head to the Figge for their new exhibition Studio1: Pop Art Soup to see iconic images by Andy Warhol. Or, familiarize yourself with another newer exhibit during the docent-guided tour of the No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service Exhibition. If you prefer to be the artist, be sure to try out the Acrylic Painting Class for beginners.
Looking for environmental, cultural, and physical activities for kids? How about an afternoon of obstacle courses, bounce houses, basket ball, kite making, and more? Celebrate at Davenport Parks and Recreation on Wednesday during Youthfest! Due to high water, the event has been relocated from Centennial Park to the Fejevary Children's Center.
The Adler Theater's Grace Potter & the Nocturnals show is right around the corner on July 13! Be sure to get your tickets before it's too late.   While you're at it, grab your tickets for the Headbanger's Burlesque Part Deux coming to the Adler on July 20th, too.
With summer flying by, take a moment to appreciate the beautiful weather while you can! Enjoy a delicious lunch outdoors on the patio of Sippi's or Barrel House 211. After lunch, walk on over to The Ruby Slipper or the SiS International Shop to peruse wide selections of gifts and trinkets! Of course, you can't beat the fine dining at Duck City Bistro if you're in the mood for something unique and delicious for dinner.
Last but not least, we'd like to thank everyone who came out for Red White & Boom!  The weather was beautiful and we were thrilled to give you a great fireworks show from the Centennial Bridge.  We'd also like to say thanks one more time  to Genesis Health System and Riverboat Development Authority for sponsoring the fireworks and making this great QC tradition possible.
See you downtown!
