It’s the holiday shopping season again. If you are like me, you are looking for a different shopping experience. Join in the fun of the 4th annual That Dam Shopping Trip. Named for Lock and Dam 15 , this “shop hop” experience is a 2-day event held on Black Friday, November 23 and on Small Business Saturday, November 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The brain child of local marketing guru, Brandy VandeWalle, this bi-state shopping event joins the downtown areas of Rock Island, Illinois, and Davenport, Iowa.
Everything doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg in order to have some fun with friends, family and/or your little ones. In the Quad Cities, take a look below at all the free fun we have going on around here!
Over 28 years ago a group of professional local artists decided that the Quad Cities needed an art fair run by artists with the interests of the participating artists in mind. That was the birth of Riverssance Festival of Fine Art. Since its inception, Riverssance has been bringing the finest of local and national artists and artisans to the area each year.
Located in the historic Village of East Davenport in Davenport, Iowa, the art fair is held annually the 3rd full weekend in September (Sept. 19-20) in Lindsay Park on the top of a tree-lined hill which overlooks the scenic Mississippi River.
