Spring Beaux Arts Celebration

The Quad Cities is a fine arts community. Whether a musical event or an art show, the design, attention to detail and promotional success has been grand. The bi-annual Beaux Arts Fair is no different as the crowds grow in the streets to discover the newest artist displays that the area has to offer.

Celebrating 65 years of the Beaux Arts Fundraising Committee and 51 years of the downtown festival, the Beaux Arts Fair is one of the longest-running art fairs in the Midwest.

With continual expansion, active participation and significant attendance, the fair has become a bi-annual celebration, with festivals both in the fall and in the spring. There’s few limits to the possibilities art provides, not only for the artist on site, but the inspiration that the attendees see in the artwork. This fair not only serves as a popular art market for vendors but a venue that instills hope, inspiration, creativity, and passion. For a list of the featured registered artists to date, please visit this link.

The spring Beaux Arts Fair takes place on Saturday, May 12th and Sunday, May 13th from 10am to 5pm and 10am to 4pm, respectively. Much of the fair resides outside the Figge Art Museum on Bechtel Plaza in downtown Davenport, and continues onto West 2nd Street. This event is family-friendly, and includes a children’s area, musical entertainment and activities, and multiple food vendors.
