After rocking the television world with The Cosby Show, one of America's most beloved comedians is back to visit the Adler Theatre on Saturday! Through his comedy routines, best-selling books, and iconic albums, the great Bill Cosby has captivated generations of fans and he's sure to do just that this weekend.
This Saturday, 30 mega-talented indie arts & craft vendors all be in one sweet venue - the Davenport Skybridge! Handmade City 6 is not to be missed! Come downtown and enjoy some great views while you shop for local handmade jewelry, clothing, accessories, art and more. To peruse more art,  make your way to the Eye of the Beholder: The Photography of Bradley W. Schaupp exhibit before it closes at German American Heritage Center.  

impractical jokers Looking for yet more laughs? An interactive comedy show featuring the Cast of Impractical Jokers takes the Adler stage Friday. You can expect never before seen videos, an audience question and answer session, stand-up comedy, and more.  Also, remember to save the date to see legendary singer songwriter Gordon Lightfoot when he brings his "50 Years on the Carefree Highway Tour" to the Adler Wednesday.

 

relay for life Support the American Cancer Society this Saturday at the Scott County Relay for Life. This premiere fundraiser is designed to celebrate cancer survivors, educate and spread awareness, and raise money for cancer research, education, and patient services.  On Monday, kick back and relax a little by attending "Beat the Flood Day" at Modern Woodmen Park.  The game is FREE!
the steepwater band
Genesis Health System and River Music Experience team up this weekend to present Alive From the Redstone Room with The Steepwater Band on Saturday and The Devil Makes Three on Sunday! Averaging 125 shows around the world per year, The Steepwater Band puts on a rock and roll show full of infectious energy.  The Devil Makes Three show is already sold-out so we hope you've picked up your  tickets!
figge pop art Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Andy Warhol's Campbell Soup paintings with the Figge this weekend during their Art@Heart 2013 event. Enjoy an evening of fine art, fine food, drinks, and friendship. Stick around for the Figge Post Pop After Hours Party and rock through the '50s and '60s with The Neverly Brothers. Here's your chance to be part of a first-ever rock n' roll party in a Figge gallery. 1960s attire is encouraged!
Spring is upon us!  The robins are back and the grass is  showing signs of life!  With that comes spring cleaning.  Each year Davenport and Bettendorf organize a spring cleaning for our downtowns. Thank you to all of our residents and businesses participating in the year's cleanup!
Mother's Day Our annual Mother's Day Promotion featuring great downtown deals and ideas for Mom is now underway!  Visit DowntownDavenport.com for everything from flowers and spa treatments to info on Beaux Arts Fair and many other great gift ideas from our downtown retailers.  Find something cool and unique for Mom while supporting local business!
