Fall is the season of leaves, cooler temps, pumpkin spice, and Oktoberfests! There are a lot of different versions to this fun classic event in the Quad Cities.

Labor Day Weekend in the Quad Cities is always filled with fun festivities, picnics, last minute pool splashes and (hopefully) great weather. But, of course, none of it would be complete without the annual parades in Rock Island and East Moline.
When I saw the information for the first OMG BeckyFest, I knew it would be outstanding because the folks from Crafted Quad Cities are organizing it. Everyone knows that they have the scoop on what is “on trend” in the makers market.
It’s the last hurrah of summer! What are your plans for Labor Day Weekend? We have some ideas for you.
The Quad Cities is a melting pot of cultures. Throughout September the heritage of this area on the Mississippi River will be celebrated through a mixture of events with the Latino, Celtic, Belgian, German cultures, the history of farming, and the regional artists that bring it to life.
Make plans to join the Quad Cities community at the Quad City Symphony Riverfront Pops Concert – The Beatles’ Greatest Hits on Saturday, August 19.
Bring chairs, blankets, food, coolers, family and friends to LeClaire Park in Iowa. You can also buy concessions from some of your local favorites. Set out your picnic spread and enjoy the show!
Fair Week in the Quad Cities is nothing short of legendary. It’s filled with country music, rock and the cool breeze (or in some cases, the heat wave) a summer night brings.
Add in the delicacy of fair food, lemonades and some beers, a couple spinny rides that you scream your head off, and livestock with baby animals…it’s a great time. Pile on the people that bring you the most joy in your life, and it can be the best event of the summer.
Fair Week is back again, and the buzz has been in the air since the close of last concert of the 2016 Mississippi Valley Fair. So put on your boots, join the crowd, indulge in some fried food and drinks, and holler to get ready for these summer nights.
Anticipation is in the air already as people are gearing up for the first holiday 3-day weekend of the summer. So…. What you doing? We’ve put together a list of things to keep you busy when you’re not grilling out.
