Homebrew Festiv-Ale returns to the Quad Cities on Saturday, July 20, 2019. FestivAle is the only local beer festival that features over 50 home brewed beers.

There will be a selection of beers from the local Quad Cities clubs: MUGZ, REFS, Powder Keggers, and Trade My Home Brew. There will also be home brew clubs from outside the area, including members of CRAZE from the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area as well as the Cedar Rapids Beer Society, who will have tents set up and will be pouring samples of their concoctions.

You don’t want to miss the 2019 Rock Island Artists’ Market.
“The artists’ market is community at its best. It’s a venue for local artists and vendors to share their work and it’s in Rock Island. There are jewelry vendors, snacks, produce vendors, clothing, accessories, pottery. You could find a gift for any friend or family member, something beautiful for yourself and produce for lunch or dinner that night. I love how friendly and excited everyone is at these events and Brandy VandeWalle is amazing, organized and a joy to be around,” shares Sarah McCoy, Rock Island resident.
