DAVENPORT, IOWA (May 22, 2024) — Sip on ice cold lemonade and shop exclusive deals on Saturday, June 15, 2024, 10AM–5PM, at the Lemonade Sip N’ Shop event presented by the Downtown Davenport Partnership (DDP). Stroll through charming shops, enjoy refreshing lemonade and take advantage of special deals at more than 20 participating businesses in downtown Davenport.

“We’re happy to continue our Sip N’ Shop event series - this time with lemonade! The Hot Cocoa Sip N’ Shop in February was such a hit that we’re keeping the momentum going with a Lemonade Sip N’ Shop on Father’s Day weekend. We’re excited to help shoppers beat the summer heat with free lemonade while they discover and score exclusive deals in our downtown businesses,” said Olivia Warren, Manager of Business Engagement for DDP.

What to expect:

  • Mouth-watering lemonade: Enjoy complimentary lemonade with a variety of sweet enhancements like fruit slices, garnishments, boozy twists or tiny umbrellas.
  • Special promotions: Discover exclusive discounts available only during the event hours at participating stores.
  • Downtown selfie challenge: Take ten photos while you're shopping at various businesses, post them on your social media and tag each business to enter for prize giveaways.
  • Stamp card: Make a purchase at five of the participating businesses, get stamped and you'll be entered into the grand prize basket giveaway.
    • Turn in your stamp card to participating businesses to enter the giveaway, and get the chance to score free tickets to the next day’s River Bandit’s baseball game on June 16.

How to join the fun:

Visitors can start their adventure at any of the participating businesses receiving a color-changing, reusable cup to refill with free lemonade all day.
