ROCK ISLAND, ILLINOIS (September 1, 2022) — September is a big month at Quad City Arts!

Riverssance Festival of Fine Art is coming up quickly on September 17 and 18. For two days, we transform Lindsay Park in the Village of East Davenport into an art collectors dream. Over seventy fine-art vendors, four incredible food-vendors, live music, and local wine and craft beer. Plus, we even have children’s activities from ArtsBasics! Riverssance is a great way to enjoy some time outside, meet great artists, grow your art collection, and support the arts. Interested in helping out and getting a free Riverssance t-shirt and free admission? Click here to volunteer! Your admission to Riverssance ($5 for one day or $8 for a two-day pass) supports the wide range of arts programming from Quad City Arts.

Speaking of programming, our Visiting Artist Series heads back into the schools this month beginning with Son Monarcas! Visiting Artists back in schools also means our Performing Arts Signature Series (PASS) will be starting up soon as well. Want to get your Backstage PASS and enjoy an intimate evening with some of these artists in unique venues including some drinks and hors devours? Tickets will be on sale very soon, but you can see who is coming now: Click Here to Learn More.
